Wearable technology is all the rage these days.

Designed by TX54, which came in second in a global design competition organised by international watch brand Timex, this disposable timepiece can be worn on the user's thumbnail as a timekeeping device and a fashion accessory.

The device is transluscent with a selection of text colour options and a glow feature that activates on command. It blends in with the nail almost like nail polish, except that it has a cool user interface and a functional, minimalist edge to it.
