The Computer Fashion Wave. This paper enlightens on how various computerized jewelry (like ear-rings. and voice communication. Even the devices we use are protected by passwords. there will be an explosion of computer parts across our bodies. necklace. jewellery adorns the body. voicemail. that allow wearable you to The latest computer craze has been to be able to wear wireless computers. In the next age of computing. 1. etc. Basically. rather than across our desktops. “Digital . based. but many of today's mobile devices can still be a bit awkward to carry around. The combination of microcomputer devices and increasing computer power has allowed several companies to begin producing fashion jewellery with embedded intelligence i. The other key factor of this concept market is to stay fashionable at the same time.Abstract Mobile computing is beginning to break the chains that tie us to our desks. The whole concept behind this is to be able to communicate to others by means of wireless appliances. computerized ring that will automatically unlock doors and log on to computers. we could be wearing our computers instead of sitting in front of them.

Here are the pieces of computerizedjewelry phone and their functions: Together. phone: Microphone. to perform the functions of the above components. and account information. IBM has developed a prototype of a cell phone that consists of several pieces of digital jewellery that will work together wirelessly. They have the potential to be all-in-one replacements for your driver’s license. and Battery.

this wrist display could also be used as a caller identifier that flashes the name and phone number of the caller. which looks something like a black-pearl ring. developing will use the company's Track Point technology to wirelessly move the cursor on a computermonitor display. in .

(Track Point is the little button embedded in the keyboard of some laptops).Equipped with a video graphics array (VGA) display. • • Bracelet .• Necklace . or else dumped altogether -. IBM's magic decoder rings will flash when you get a call. the keypad and dialing function could be integrated into the bracelet. The mouse-ring that IBM is With a jewellery phone.Perhaps the most interesting piece of the phone. This flashing alert could also indicate the urgency of the e-mail.Users will talk into the necklace's embedded microphone. this "magic decoder ring” is equipped with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that flash to indicate an incoming call. The same ring that flashes for phone calls could also inform you that e-mail is piling up in your inbox. On top of the ring is a little black ball that users will swivel to move the cursor. IBM Researchers have transferred Track Point technology to a ring. It can also be programmed to flash different colors to identify a particular caller or indicate the importance of a call.

Researchers are overcoming several obstacles facing these new wearable displays. So too. This Track Point ring will be very valuable when monitors shrink to the size of watch face. you'll wear the display like a pair of sunglasses or a bracelet. Digital jewelry devices consist of a screen or display for information. A micro controller that is a surface mounted device (SMD) on a printed circuit board (PCB) with resistors (R) and capacitors (C) are the internal 'guts' of the jewelry. In the coming age of ubiquitous computing. for instance. most likely consisting of 7-16-segment.
