Leave it to cool-girl brand Opening Ceremony to take wearable tech to a whole new fashion level! Yesterday they took the wraps off of MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory) their new smart accessory that is not only gorgeous, but connects you to your text messages, Google calendar, Yelp, Facebook notifications, and more.
The Intel-engineered intelligent bracelet is composed of precious gems and Ayers snakeskin, and comes in two styles finished with 18k gold—a black version encrusted with pearls from China and lapis stones from Madagascar and a white style featuring tiger’s eye from South Africa and obsidian from Russia.
"Today’s modern woman maintains selectivity and exclusivity when choosing accessories, and MICA embodies a beautifully unique statement piece," says Humberto Leon, co-founder and creative director of Opening Ceremony. "The wearable space is an exciting, rapidly expanding category, and it has been a thrill to be involved in the convergence of fashion and technology through this collaboration with Intel."
The touchscreen display delivers notifications directly to your wrist and keeps you socially connected through a VIP contact list that filters your messages, lets you respond to calendar and event notifications, and even enables you to take advantage of a personal concierge that adjusts based on your location. The best part? MICA comes with two years of AT&T wireless data service so its set and ready to go. This beauty is sure to make a style statement.
