Smart friendship bracelet gets girls into codingAfter two years of development, startup Jewelbots launched on Thursday programmable friendship bracelets for kids.

Somehow Teen Girls Get the Coolest Wearable Out ThereJewelbots are bracelets with programmable plastic flowers made for middle-school girls. They're also the most interesting wearable I've seen this year. Their creators describe them as " friendships bracelets that teach girls to code."
