This ring will rule them all
Some years ago I wondered what new technologies would appear in the future. A smart watch didn’t cross my mind. Yesterday I’ve read about a ring that controls your devices via Bluetooth. Just make a simple gesture and it powers your TV and controls your mobile devices and even your smart watch.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, a Japanese company created a ring to control all devices by simply making movements with your finger. Just put the ring on your index finger, power it and make gestures. Do you want to take a photo or control your music player? Do you want to write a tweet? It’s all possible with this ring. It can tweet, check the weather, control your volume, controls the temperature in your living room. The possibilities are endless.
The battery lasts 1-3 days, depending on how much you are going to use this ring and it takes just 3 hours to charge. You can also set your own gestures for each device you are controlling with this ring.
But why should you control your smart watch that controls your smartphone with a smart ring. If connected to a Google Glass, why should you make a gesture to take a picture? Why would a mobile device have a touchscreen if you don’t need to touch it anymore while using this ring?
This ring connects to devices via Bluetooth and controls it using gestures, so it makes the touch with mobile devices irrelevant. Is this an innovation that activates a chain reaction in several industries? I think this small creation will have a big impact on the smartphone industry. If touch screens become irrelevant, companies will think of other ways to control your devices. What are your opinions? What do you think will happen with the introduction of this ring?
