This is pretty much the definition of, “sounds cool, till you think it through.” Not that you ever actually looked that phrase up in Google or anything.
A “smart necklace” with a Bluetooth earpiece, the Miragii projects texts, or the name and number of who’s calling, onto your hand, and then allows you to respond with a wave or gesture. Which seems great, except for two things:
One – anyone looking over your shoulder can see the number of the person calling you. And let’s just say, hypothetically, that Abraxas’ Sex-A-Torium is calling you about a problem with the gag gift of a blow-up sheep you ordered for a friend’s bachelor party (These things happen, right? I have to ask because obviously I’ve never done any such thing. Obviously). Do you want that conversation to happen, or worse, not happen and turn into secret whispers?
Two – speaking of Sex-A-Torium, it doesn’t necessarily look like what I’d call “jewelry.”
But I’m not going to judge. If you want one, the Kickstarter is live right now.
