Intel shows off intelligent bracelet

Written by Nick Farrell

 

Watches are so last season

Chipmaker Intel has been showing off a new intelligent fashion bracelet at New York Fashion Week.

Dubbed My Intelligent Communication Accessory, or MICA, has glamorous looks as well as 3G cellular connectivity.  It doesn’t need to be tethered to a smartphone.

Designed by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim of fashion house Opening Ceremony, MICA is a cuff-style accessory covered with snakeskin as well as semiprecious stones such as obsidian and lapis, which were important stones in Ancient Egyptian tombs.

It will be available in two styles, one with white snakeskin and the other with black snakeskin, each with different stones.

The 1.6-inch sapphire-glass touchscreen can display SMS messages relayed through the bracelet’s Intel XMM6321 3G cellular radio. It can also display calendar alerts.

No world on price yet, but if you have to ask you can’t afford it. It will be sold through some Barneys and Opening Ceremony stores by the December holiday season.

The MICA bracelet also follows Intel’s acquisition of health-tracking wristband maker Basis Science in March.
