I've seen a lot of smartwatches but I've never seen anything like the Kairos watch.
I'm Scott Stein at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Kairos watch takes a mechanical watch and layers a transparent display on top.
This is a prototype that's running a demo loop.
That's the first time that we've seen it.
And it's basically layering those smart watch notifications on top of a watch.
And so you're getting a hybrid.
You can see underneath, there are gears.
And then here, there are screens, ya know, like, Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling, or you're listening to your music.
Now, interesting kind of a gimmick, but wait.
Think about where this could go.
What if you took something like a glowing display and layered it on top.
Of reflected LCD displays.
We have sort of a Pebble watch that also had glowing notifications that layered on top of it to save battery life.
It's pretty cool.
Now I don't know when this is coming out.
What it costs.
We're just getting a brief glimpse of this at the show.
The Kairos watch is only in prototype right now.
And it is a big watch.
But its a pretty interesting trick, I'm Scott Stein, here at Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona.
