It says the video is "private" - so there is nothing to see???

The creator of the Dick Tracy comic did not foresee the day when everyone would carry a small phone in their pocket, and that this device would be so much more than just a phone. Like others have said, so many of us have long ago abandoned wearing a device on our wrists. The fact that this new product is not a replacement for the smartphone makes it even less appealing.

@yalanland As was discussed earlier in the thread; about $350 over the Internet and the company will take your money now..

To me $350 sounds expensive. Remember i have to a smartphone as well. This is a funky wrist-based display. A $35 price might tempt me. But maybe the price will come down after the company has taken money off all the people prepared to pay $350.

@peter, $350 sounds reasonable for this gadget. I hope innovative products like this will improve the sales this festive season which will help the economy to recover.

Wow this is pretty cool stuff. How much this device costs and will it be launched globally ?

I agree, not because of the sight problems or because the young ones take to everything new, but because of diminishing returns of cramming too much in too little space; to what end?

My eye sight is way too far gone to even think that this might be a good idea. I even think the 7" tablets are too small to see. The younger generation my take to these, but I do not think it will become a must have item.

@rick.merritt: I am one of those who likes to wear an iPod Nano whenever I am flying. Other times I don't see any need for a Dick Tracy-like watch. @ReneCardenas: ditto, it has been years since I wore a watch. I don't feel the need for one any more with local time available from so many sources. On the color-coordinating side, this may be a God-send for my wife, she can easily change the background to match! MP Divakar

I am not sure that I want to wear anything in my arm or wrist again!. It has been years that I stopped wearing any item strapped to my body. So I am not sure that I would make the exception just for coordinated color or ID style. But again, maybe many others would not mind, just MHO.
