While at Computex 2018 in Taipei the C-Net team saw some pretty blinged out wearables!
An RFID chip embedded in the Xring and Necklace can be used to open smart locks, and an LED embedded under the gem refracts coloured light to alert you to phone notifications.
But that’s not even the best part.
The necklace shoots perfume at you when you get a phone call. Natch.
I’ll level with you here: When I asked the CEO of Yokojima Co. (the Taiwanese company behind the smart jewellery) how the technology worked, the response was a big smile and the words “Patent pending!” 10 minutes of delightful conversation later, the closest I got was a hint at bluetooth technology.
In today's next installment of weird and wonderful tech at #Computex, this smart ring can open locks and spray perfume when you're getting a phone call. Bonus points for Liberace looks… pic.twitter.com/NxjMc8rTuv
