New ‘Active Crystals’ line of posh techie accessories to include headphones and USB memory keys.
Electronics giant Philips and world-famous crystal company Swarovski are collaborating on a line of fashionable tech accessories called Active Crystals.
So far, the Active Crystals line has unveiled four sets of headphones of polished silver metal embedded with crystals: Space, Icon, Amazone (in-ear headphones), and Mirage is of the (ear hook headphones).
Also unveiled: high-fashion USB memory keys — yes!!!
The crystal-embedded USB memory keys are user password protected and come in four 1GB varieties: Heart Ware, Heart Beat, Lock In, and Lock Out.
Heart Ware and Heart Beat are [adorable!] pendants that open to reveal a USB key; the Lock In and Lock Out models are attached to a keychain. (Click image at top right for larger view of the Lock In.)
Products will be available this August at Swarovski, department, and consumer electronics retail stores, and I totally want one.
My female coworkers and I walk around with unattractive USB memory sticks on dingy gray lanyards around our necks. Doesn’t exactly complement Tiffany earrings, does it? Depending on how much these Active Crystal products are, I say they’re going to be a big hit. (And did I mention, I want one?)
