Swarovski tech: Glittery gadgets gone too far?


I'm a sucker for reasonably priced, cleverly disguised geek-wear. When Swarovski went tech with their new "Active Crystals" line, I found myself wondering if we've gone a little too far with our lust for luxury. When did we go ga-ga for glittery gadgets?

Suspended from a beige silk cord, this heart pendant splits into two parts, revealing a hidden USB memory key. Made of polished stainless steel with fully faceted, asymmetrically-cut Silver Shade crystal, the two halves are held together with a pin. There's 1GB of data (which is about 250 songs or 1,000 photos) with password protection and high-speed USB 2.0 interface.


There are several other items in the Active Crystal line, including a selection of earphones and headphones at Amazon, and if demand continues, I suspect we'll see a few more in the future.


Price: $178 at swarovski.com.
