When we saw this necklace, we knew it was perfect for our audience. It works both for straight-up Apple fangirls and also the girl who has to get under the hood of every gadget. For the former, this pendant is ready to go right out of the box. The default pulse that comes preprogrammed is reverse engineered from the Apple “breathing” LED pattern. The latter can get in and tinker with how the pendant's LED flashes to her heart's desire, because it's completely open source. The source code, circuit board files, schematics and CAD files are posted on GitHub.
The pendant is machined from 6-series aluminum. Each iNecklace contains a circuit board with pulsating LED and two CR1220 batteries (one for now, one for later). The pendant is on a 18″ sterling silver 1.6mm diamond-cut curb chain that has been treated to inhibit tarnishing. Comes packaged in a black velveteen box.
