talk to the wrist

I am not really sure what these electronic bracelets actually do, but according to their creator, Leah Buechley a Ph.D. student in Computer Science, these sassy LED accessories function as “motion-sensing, communicating wearable displays. Each bracelet contains an accelerometer that senses wrist movement and a Bluetooth module for wireless communication. They can interact with laptops, PDAs and cell phones as well as each other and other wearables.” Whoa! Pretty high tech for my simple mortal mind…but pretty, without a doubt.
