Skintile Detects Feelings

Skintile, an electric jewelry, is partly affected by the mood of the wearer.

It happens many times, that we have feelings we can't express. Why not let our jewelry express them for us? I don't mean dressing in accordance of our mood. It's the other way round.

Skintile was designed by Philips with the help of the European project, STELLA, for their 'far-future' research, Design Probes.

It surely looks beautiful, but do we really want our emotions to be - literally - out in the open?
