digital jewelry

a.k.a. chip jewelry -or- surfwear

The name for high-tech devices that people wear, including hip gadgets, such as pagers or cell phones. Companies that market these products are attempting to turn phones into fashion statements. As they put it, "Hey, why carry a device when you can wear it?" They are suggesting that the serious technojunkie should wear a cell phone/PDA combo during the day but switch to a slim shirt-sized or small purse-sized phone for use at night. (And if you haven't noticed, the fellow in the photo is taking it to the extreme!)
