It would be totally cool to connect it up to a wireless mesh network and blink specific patterns when in proximity of someone else wearing the same earrings. A kind of secret handshake.

Thanks for this article.  This is not anything new.   I remember seeing something like this doing my teenage college years traveling to Manhattan, New York City (off of Broadway) when I was visiting the fashion district doing the 80's.   Market?  Well, at the time, someone was selling an item similar to this one on the street corner; and we did not have twitter and the Internet was not as popular as it is today.  Well, good luck!

It's  a cool project, but I have to agree with Janine. The fashionability, if that is a word, is questionable.

Making earrings from computer parts? Well that's green of her anyway. One of the coolest things I bought was a clipboard that was made out of an old PCB.

Hahaha, I doubt it is something intended for a broad market. I know several people that would wear this with pride at certain events, but it won't be making it into a store in your local mall any time soon. 

The inspiration for this project was actually a woman making earrings out of computer parts!

Any market research done on this product? I'm an earring wearer, and, frankly, I'm thinking "no thanks!"
