Abstract

As wearables are entering the domain of fashion, it is not uncommon to see criticisms of their unfashionable aesthetics and gadgetry that do not necessarily consider consumer preferences and a need to create desire for wearable objects. As other categories of wearable devices, jewelry-like devices are in the process of undergoing a profound and rapid change. In this paper, we examine 187 jewelry-like devices that are either already available on the market, or are at various stages of development and research. We then examine various parameters using descriptive statistics, and give an overview of some major emerging trends and developments in jewelry-like devices. We then highlight and propose directions for technical features, use of material and interacting modalities and so on that could be applied in the development of the future computational jewelry devices.
