Express your geek chic with iCufflinks, open-source cufflinks that look like glowing power buttons. Tinkerers are invited to download the plans and source code and make them two-of-a-kind.

Talk about geek chic. Adafruit Industries' iCufflinks bring a sleek new dimension to the power suit. Made from machined aluminum, the iCufflinks contain LED lights that gently glow behind the classic computer power button symbol.

This could be just the edge you need to intimidate your foes across the bargaining table or attract a geeky mate in a dimly lit bar.

Tinkerers will appreciate the open-source nature of these shiny accessories. Download the source code, circuit board files, schematics, and CAD files and go to town customizing your iCufflinks. Reprogram the LED light pattern into Morse code if you're feeling adventurous.

The iCufflinks get about 24 hours of blinky time from the batteries. That should get you through at least a few business meetings.

These tech fashion statements will be available tomorrow for $128. The first batch sold out in less than a day, so mark your calendar if you want a pair.
