story imageFrom the department of questionable business decisions comes Intel's MICA:
The MICA, which was engineered by Intel, will be sold at luxury retailer Barneys New York and priced under $1,000, in line with similar jewelry from Opening Ceremony, Intel said. The device will provide alerts and notifications, including SMS messages, calendar reminders, meeting alerts and other notifications sent directly to the wrist display. Also, two-way wireless data communication through a 3G cellular radio will be available without the need to pair with a smartphone. The device can charge wirelessly or using a USB cable. Intel in October plans to provide more details on the bracelet's capabilities.

The models are pretty scary. They look like mannequins come to life, which, maybe is the real purpose of the smart watch, to create an Intel army to do battle with AMD.
