Tactum is the name of a hi-tech system creating 3D printed jewelry. Although such designs aren't that innovative anymore, this system certainly is. Tactum uses interactive projection mapping to design the bracelets. Incredibly futuristic, the designs can be worn as basic accessories, or coupled with wearable technology to really elevate the designs into something truly useful.

Created by digital research studio MadLab, the Tactum system generates topography projections around a person's arm that can be manipulated by touch. Dezeen writes, "These images respond to gestures that enable the real-time modelling of wearable objects."

Relying on depth and motion sensors in existing devices, Tactum "is able to coordinate imprecise skin-based gestures to create very precise designs around very precise forms," writes the studio.
