Technology meets fashion with the latest gadget, a gold and enamel bracelet to appeal to women. Let me introduce you to MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory). This bracelet is the brainchild of Intel and MICA, a fashionable bangle that allows you to access Facebook,Google, a Garmin GPS and Yelp reviews on its sleek sapphire screen. The bracelet also features a SIM card and a battery that last 48 hours. Although I love the look of this very chic bracelet and it seems that it would work for our very on the go schedules. My question would be: Do we really need yet another way to be less engaged with our fellow humans? You decide...
Thank you for your interest.
