Do pendants and other wearable ornaments lack pizzazz for you? Alexander Zolotov has a way to spice things up... if you're fond of 8-bit graphics gone haywire, at least. His Quantum VJ is small enough to hang around your neck, but clever enough to turn audio into wonderfully glitchy visuals on its 128 x 64 OLED display. As you'll see below, the result is at once modest yet mesmerizing -- plug in some tunes and you'll have a tiny, synchronized light show several inches away from your face. It runs for 20 hours on a typical coin-sized battery, too, so it can distract passers-by all day long. This is currently a one-of-a-kind device that doesn't even have video out, but Zolotov tells The Creators Project that future models might have output. If so, you may one day have a dance party backdrop dangling around your chest.
