London, Oct 5 (ANI): Forget whispering sweet nothings into your lover's ear, for a piece of jewellery does it literally.
With the new design by Cheng Xu, a student in tangible interactive design at Carnegie Mellon University, your beloved can now wear your words as earrings instead, reports New Scientist.
Xu's invention called Speaker turns spoken words into jewellery with a hidden meaning.
A user speaks into a microphone linked to an Arduino microcontroller that analyses changes in volume.It controls several small motors that push and bend a wire to represent the sound of the user's words: effectively acting as a real-time jeweller.
"The wire speaker started as a project in response to the question, 'How do we interactively make things in the era of digital tools?'" said Xu.
The original prototype was put together using toy car wheels, but Xu has developed a more sophisticated design, which was showcased at Maker Faire. (ANI)
