Get ready to take the concept of wearable tech to a whole new level. While American companies want to create smart jewelry that links to your phone, Warsaw-based art collective panGenerator is creating tech that projects a light beam necklace onto a wearer. According to Wired, "The result is Neclumi, an app that pairs with a picoprojector, attached to a shirt collar, to shine little light tattoos on the wearer's neck, like a glow-in-the-dark choker necklace." Hear that sound? It's the collective squeal of every Burner in SF anticipating laser beam jewelry. Love and light, betches. [Wired]
