DIGITAL JEWELLERY

INTRODUCTION 

"Digital Jewellery" looks to be the next sizzling fashion trend 

combination of shrinking computer devices and increasing computer power 

concept is to communicate to others by means of wireless appliances

WHAT IS DIGITAL JEWELERY? 

fashion jewelry with embedded intelligence contain personal information like passwords, identification, and account information potential to be all-in-one replacements for your driver s license, key chain, business cards etc

DIGITAL JEWELLERY AND ITS COMPONENTS 
For a digital jewellery cell phone,each piece of jewellery will contain a fraction of the components found in a conventional mobile phone Microphone receiver,touchpad,display,circuit board,antenna and battery IBM develops prototypes and cellphone

Cell phones may one day be comprised of digital accessories that Work together through wireless connections

pieces of computerized-jewelry phone and their functions 
Earrings - Speakers embedded Necklace - embedded microphone. Ring - light-emitting diodes (LEDs) Bracelet - Equipped with a video graphics array (VGA) display

Track Point TECHNOLOGY 

IBM developed this technology wirelessly move the cursor on a computer-monitor display IBM Researchers have transferred TrackPoint technology to a ring This Track Point ring shrink to the size of watch face

Charmed Technology 

  

IBM developed this technology a futuristic-looking eyepiece display can be used as an MP3 player, video player and cell phone runs on the company's Linux-based Nanix operating system

T E C H. S P E C. O F D I G I T A L J E W E L L E R Y 

consist of a screen or display for information display layer enclosed in some material such as plastic, metal, crystal, or other material has external switches and a micro controller

DISPLAY TECHNOLOGIES 

every alphabet and number system has found representation within the electronics realm and 'dot-matrix' of single LEDs different sizes and shapes with a variety of materials display information through a screen or display -LEDs devices to LCDs, OLEDs

ELECTROMAGNETIC BEADS 
similar to beads 

One bead may be a capacitor on the inside, and a solar panel on the outside 

Another bead may have an internal resistor

PROTOTYPES OF DIGITAL JEWELLERY

Highlights of Java Ring

Highlights of Java RIng 

Runs Java better (plus portions enhance Java Card 2.0) Careful attention to physical security (rapid zeroization) Durability to stand up to everyday use High memory capacity (up to 134K bytes NV SRAM) Retail connectivity to 250 million existing computers (less if designed-in before manufacturing)

CONCLUSION
The basic idea behind the digital jewelry concept is to have the convenience of wireless, wearable computers while remaining fashionably sound. It is hoped to be marketable soon, however, several bugs remain. Charging capabilities and cost are just a sample of the problems that lurk.
