inecklace
Adafruit Industries has released a necklace companion to the pulsing iCufflinks. The iNecklace is a CNC machined aluminum pendant with a pulsing LED that glows like the sleep-indicator on MacBook Pros.

The necklace pendant is CNC machined from the finest 6 series aluminum for durability and beauty. The iNecklace is a remarkable accessory. Machined with a "screw in backing" that allows easy access to the battery using a coin. Each iNecklace pendant contains a circuit board with pulsating LED and battery. The pendant comes strung on a 18" long sterling silver 1.6mm diamond-cut curb chain that has been treated to inhibit tarnishing.


Like with the iCufflink, the iNecklace emulates the pulsing LED in Apple's sleep indicator, an Apple patented technology that Adafruit reverse engineered. Apple found that the by mimicking human breathing for their sleep indicator, it was more "psychologically appealing and superior" to other waveforms.

Adafruit has a limited supply of the iNecklace available for $75. The iCufflinks are $128 but currently out of stock.

Let me know when they make a pulsating implant that only pulsates when you actually go to sleep. Kthxbai.
When I die, I want the undertaker to drill a hole in my forehead and insert a pulsing LED (that glows like the sleep-indicator on MacBook Pros), so that when people come for the viewing they can look at my corpse and comment "He looks like he's gone into sleep mode, doesn't he?"

my only problem is that the on button is pretty universal. Although the light flickers like a mac, when you move around and stuff it may just look weird.
Thats just my opinion though

for $75 :eek:

If the pulsing pattern by a MacBook represents "sleep", then the pulsing pattern on this necklace must represent "DRIVING, MUST STAY AWAKE...zzz...OH GOD! ...zzz...WHOA! I should pull over...zzz..."

You my friend, have me in absolute stitches! Best start to the morning I've had all week!

:D

Also, I own the iCufflinks. All the haters realize that their completely open source right? Both hardware & software? And can be hacked at will?

Seriously, who wouldn't want the world's first open-source hackable piece of jewelry?
