When it comes to wearable technology, designers are starting to focus on ways to integrate them seamlessly into people's everyday lives; enter the smart necklace. The smart necklace is a contemporary version of the classic locket, allowing people to store photos onto it so that they can carry more than one precious memory as they go about their day.

Simple and stylish, the smart necklace was designed by creative tech company Artefact Group, who has dubbed it Purple. Inside the smart necklace is a touchscreen that people can swipe to see more photos. To keep it as beautiful as possible, it doesn't feature a USB port. Instead, the smart necklace is charged by dropping it in ceramic charging bowl. Available in silver or gold, it works with an accompanying app.
