We're loving wearable home tech right now. First, the wearable headphone necklace. Now, the necklace clock. From Icelandic designer Thorunn Arnadottir, the necklace clock displays the time in an abacus-like fashion, but it also becomes fashion when you take it off it's base and wear it.

Each bead in the extra-long necklace of the necklace clock represents five minutes of time passing as it is released by the slowly-spinning gear and falls down the string. Orange and red beads fall every 60 minutes and represent the whole hours.

To tell the actual time gets tricky. You've got to count down or up from the silver bead (representing midnight) or the golden bead (representing noon) to the last bead that fell off the wheel.

While it's a unique clock on it's own, the remarkable thing about the Necklace Clock is that it can also be taken off the wheel and worn as a pretty cool layered necklace. Nobody will know it's from your home tech collection.
