Intel and Opening Ceremony launch gold-coated ‘smart bracelet’

Intel has teamed up with New York fashion brand Opening Ceremony to create a gold-coated smart bracelet for women, which will be available in the US in early December. 

The bracelet, named My Intelligent Communications Accessory (the MICA), aims to combine “forward-thinking” fashion with technology and will provide access and alerts to text messaging, Facebook and Gmail, among other services.

The alerts will appear on a curved glass screen on the outside of the bracelet which can be used to control its functions and settings.

The smart bracelet is finished in 18k gold and will come in two different designs – one featuring black water snake skin, pearls from China and lapis stones from Madagascar, and another featuring white snake skin, tiger eye from South Africa and obsidian from Russia.


Ayse Ildeniz, vice president and general manager for business development and strategy, New Devices Group at Intel, said: “Our pioneering collaboration with Opening Ceremony and the introduction of this category-defining smart jewellery piece advances wearable technology as a distinctively stylish accessory that places importance on both aesthetics and functionality.

Humberto Leon, co-founder and creative director, Opening Ceremony, said: “Today’s modern woman maintains selectivity and exclusivity when choosing accessories, and MICA embodies a beautifully unique statement piece.

“The wearable space is an exciting, rapidly expanding category, and it has been a thrill to be involved in the convergence of fashion and technology through this collaboration with Intel.”
