If you love technology and want to express it in a way other than showing off your latest gadgets and devices, there are more subtle ways to do it. Like wearing the iNecklace from Adafruit. The iNecklace is a necklace that features a pendant with the design of the standard symbol for power on most of our gadgets today. Inside the pendant is also a subtle pulsating LED similar to the “breathing” LED found on products like the Mac, MacBook and more. In fact, the pattern was reverse engineered from Apple’s products.
The iNecklace is made from 6 series aluminum, and allows easy access to the battery (which lasts up to 72 hours) by using a coin. The chain is 18″ long and made from 1.6mm diamond-cut sterling silver and has been treated to inhibit tarnishing. What makes the iNecklace even more special is the fact that the circuit board which controls the pulsating LED is hackable. The source code, circuit board files, schematics and CAD files for the iNecklace can be found on GitHub – so if you’re unhappy about the default pulse, you can make one of your own!
The classy-looking and geeky fashion accessory is available now and can be yours for $75. Find out more/purchase the iNecklace.
