Created by hardware design company MJ McLaren, Video Earrings are pieces of jewelry that can play four to eight hours of videos, screen savers, slideshows or advertisments while worn.

The fashion device basically consist of hook earrings with a small screen dangling from them. The device is 2.25 inches in length, 1.25 inches in height, and weighs approximately 17 grams.


The earrings connect via USB cable, which the owner can use to charge the device or load it with videos. The product is compatible with both PC and MAC platforms. The device can accept MOV, AVI, MP4, Wmv, Mpeg, and Mpg video file formats. When not in use, the Video Earrings can be powered off or put on an automatic screen saver mode. The device can play audio, but is not designed to have audio playing constantly.

The creators plan to come out with three storage capacities for the device — 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB. The planned retail cost of the earrings are $200 for the 2GB set, $249 for 4GB, and $300 for 8GB.

The company is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo to complete their prototype versions and marketing research.
