Petite, pulsing and machined in sleek aluminum, the iNecklace Wearable Electronic Pendant is the newest open source accessory from Adafruit Industries I think will be on every geek - and especially Apple nerd - girl’s wish list. The iNecklace finally hit Adafruit’s store yesterday, September 1 and is $75. It sold out on the first day.

For more on the iNecklace, read Violet Blue's blog.

The iNecklace has an LED that pulses like a power button in sleep mode.
