Intel’s MICA Smart Bracelet
Brains Meets Beauty
The problem with smart watches and other tech wearables is that they just look, well, dorky. Sure, they may put loads of functionality right there on your wrist, but there’s just nothing attractive or feminine about them. No matter how tech savvy you are, you just can’t get the average smart watch to coordinate properly with your Saturday evening black dress, heels, and designer purse ensemble.
However, Intel has a product that will eliminate the decision between staying in touch or looking your best. The MICA smart bracelet (MICA stands for My Intelligent Communication Accessory) puts advanced mobile technology and connectivity into a truly glamorous package. Part high fashion, part high tech, and part Wonder Woman wrist cuff, MICA is as stunning as it is useful.
Everything You Need, Nothing You Don’t
The curved touchscreen on MICA gives you interactive access to information and the important people in your life. Its functions include sending and receiving SMS messaging, priority notifications, and personalised calendar access, plus full Tom Tom and Yelp integration. Each MICA has its own dedicated phone number, so it’s not at all tethered to your mobile phone or any other device. You can give the number to only the people you deem most important, so that when you’re out for the evening, you can leave your phone at home and get only the messages and notifications you truly need. MICA is discreet, too. It looks like a normal chunky fashion bracelet, and it notifies the wearer of a message or notification with a gentle buzz.
The Look of Luxury
MICA currently comes in two different styles, each one crafted from some of the finest materials in the world. There’s no plastic, rubber, or ordinary metal here. Instead, you’ll find a touchscreen made of sapphire glass, black or white water snake skin, 18k gold, pearls, obsidian, and other semi precious stones. In fact, at first glance, MICA looks like a piece of luxury jewellery from Barney’s — which it is, but a turn of the wrist reveals its full capabilities. This is no ordinary bracelet, and it’s no ordinary smart watch. The perfect marriage of luxury and technology, MICA is now in its own category: smart jewellery.
