Haier showed up at Mobile World Congress 2018 eager to prove that there are still functions to boot from a portable device.
The new Asu Smartwatch is square, bulky and hides a small projector. It is not what you are looking for if you want an elegant or elegant accessory. But the Asu is still a topic of conversation.
The projector peeks out the right side of the watch, throwing a variety of information and images at the back of your hand or anything else you point at. With the resolution of 480×854 pixels of the projector, I could see clearly what was projected on my skin something hairy.
Turn your hand on a screen with this projector clock
Exactly, what can it show? You can project the digits you are touching when you enter a phone number. I suppose it could be a smart way to share your number with a date. You can also show the steps you have taken with the integrated exercise tracker. Some of its most basic functions, such as the stopwatch, also work with the projector. I could imagine that it would be useful if you are running and looking at the watch face is too difficult. If you are more daring, you can give yourself a temporary tattoo based on light like drawing an image on the 1.5 inch touch screen (240×240 pixels).
The Asu has a gigabyte of memory inside and is powered by a 1.2GHz processor. Other features include a heart rate sensor, GPS, 4G LTE support and a gyroscope. The Asu has an IP65 rating that makes it resistant to dust and water gusts from a low pressure nozzle.
If you wonder if the Asu is really a brilliant idea, I do not blame you. The projector is unique and intriguing, no doubt, but it also has a certain "OK, so what?" element. How practical is it? What problem does it solve? Honestly, I can not say it. You can use it to check what time it is, of course. But there are many other ways to do it.
