We can’t leave the house without our smartphones, tablets, fitness trackers, MP3 players, and handheld gaming consoles. Regular folks (okay, supernerdy regular folks) are sporting Google Glass, and wearable tech is one of the fastest-growing segments in the industry.
And now we have high-tech jewelry. Gigabytes are becoming a girl’s (and guy’s) best friend, and we’re not talking about recycled circuit boards made into earrings. Necklaces that double as portable file storage, communication devices disguised as rings, and bracelets that pack miniature presentation projectors—some are available for purchase now, but most are still in the concept stage. This is high-tech jewelry that’s beautiful in form and futuristic in function.
