Apparently the Ring is not a fashion item, but if you want to control your devices with your finger, the Ring will bring gesture control, text transmission and payment to you.
The Ring is an innovative and practical input device with gesture control features designed to offer you a more convenient way to control your devices. As we can see from the images, the input device is shaped as a thickened silver ring in order that you can easily wear the ring on your index finger, while using built-in Bluetooth technology the input ring is able to connect with your smartphone, and controlling those compatible devices that have connected with your smartphone with your finger, and the Ring also features an optional Ring Hub that can send infrared or WiFi to any compatible device, allowing you to control those home appliances which were previously incompatible with Ring’s software.
Moreover, using Ring’s precise letter recognition software you can type letters anywhere, anytime for Twitter, Facebook and more, and using GPS or iBeacon you can also conveniently make payment by tracing the number with your finger or gesturing a checkmark at participating stores. Apart from that, built-in rechargeable battery offers approx 1000 gestures between charges. After the break, check out the following demo video first.
