A new project from MIT Media Lab showcases the potential versatility of a piece of jewelry. Kino is “living” robotic jewelry that moves right before your eyes for functionality and aesthetic purposes.

Kino is equipped with sensor devices, allowing the jewelry to react to the environment and move around on its own. It can shift into various shapes or designs, etch temporary patterns onto clothes and work with climate reactive gear. Right now, Kino is still a prototype, but MIT envisions that the robotic jewelry will be miniaturized and could be seamlessly added to clothing in the future.
