When your gadgets go to sleep, they tend to pulse peacefully. LEDs programmed to a soothing "breathing" waveform are to thank. You may ask yourself, why can't my cufflinks do the same?
A new open source hardware project of Phil Torrone's at Adafruit, the iCufflinks consist of a custom-machined aluminum power button, a simple circuit board programmed to pulse organically (a product of some clever reverse engineering), and a battery, which is good for 24 hours of elegance.
In true open-source form, you can download everything from the aluminum schematics to the code that controls the LED from GitHub. My question to Phil, or any other coders out there--when can I attach these to a chest sensor to match my own breathing? While I dream of electric sheep?
They're $189 and available from:
Best. Cufflinks. Ever.
Now they just need laser beams in them and a wrist watch with poisonous darts in it and you can save the world from Dr. NO!

Well...how completely 2005! We did a review of cufflinks like those back then:http://www.rainydaymagazine.com/RDM2005/GearNGadgets/November2005/RDMGG_iKuffsFirstLook.htm
Nice to see that they are once again back in fashion!!!
