The Gemio smart friendship bracelet is a piece of connected light-up jewelry that can be customized over and over again. The accessories send coded messages between friends and respond to what's happening around them.

Friendship bracelets are an age-old tradition, usually traded between preteen girls to mark an unbreakable bond. This Gemio light-up jewelry takes that concept and adds a layer of technology that allows friendship bracelets to actually be a tool of communication between young adolescents as well as a high-tech, customizable accessory. Using the Gemio app, the bracelets can be transformed, displaying different patterns and light-up jewelry displays on their LED surfaces. They respond to gestures and to colors in their environment -- whether flashing a different pattern for a high-five or a wave or even coordinating themselves to their wearers' outfits.

Best of all, the light-up jewelry can be programmed through the app to communicate with other Gemio bracelets. For example, a pair of best friends could tell their bracelets to flash three times when the other one is approaching.
