The MICA Smart Bracelet

Grannies get high, Intel's high-tech bangle, Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year and more in our weekly look at the web

A new entry into the wearable tech market by Intel and Opening Ceremony is a fashion-forward accessory for women that strips down functionality to focus on what’s really important. The MICA (My Intelligent Communication Accessory) is a stylish bangle that needs no separate device to operate and comes with its own wireless plan and SIM card. The device will sync with Google Calendars, Facebook, and receive texts and emails from a specified list of contacts, making it perfect for situations where you can’t be glued to your phone.
