Children take just as much of an interest in hi-tech devices as their parents do, so products like these programmable pendants will prove themselves to be game changers. Quite literally, these linkable items bring together play, education and fashion, crossing over industries to make the most of what modern technology can offer the current generation of kids.

Invented by Lyssa Neel, Linkitz are intended to inspire little girls to learn programming and code, or simply to enjoy the experience of interacting with these responsive devices. Each one can be connected to others by jacks and ports and looped into necklaces to make stylish statements with colorful illuminating capacities. No smartphone is necessary to make these programmable pendants work, but the experience is enhanced when certain set actions may be input into the Linkitz app.
