Cabe, very funny! I swear I remember someone saying that in a sit-com or something awile back. Just having a theme song play like that.

Elizabeth, Ringly seems eerily like that bracelet. Guess it's nice to have options.

The airdog sports drone is one great boost for technology advancement. The drone can actually give viewers and fans a good view of how games are played. In games like soccer fans can actually view the goal as it enters clearly and this helps in eliminating all the human errors that may occur in terms of referees making mistakes. The drone is easy to control and not as technical as you can think.

I remember this article Liz. And i prefer The Ring over Ringly, not only does it look much better in design  but also have greater compatibility and a wider customer target as 6 variable sizes are available. The Ring also has a lot of additional features whereas the features of Ringly are quite limited.

Ringly is interesting but if you're worried about size, Daniyal, check out The Ring: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?doc_id=271999


I wrote about this awhile back. it's a little bit of a different concept, but along the same lines, and the design seems sleeker.

@a.saji: Not in a significant way but there is a notable difference

@Daniyel: Does the size has a big difference as such ?

The AirDog sports drone sure is impressive, especially with its autonomous control capability. I'd like to have one follow me around and play a theme song while I walk down the street.

Thank you Lauren for the update.  These "quad-copters" are beginning to really fascinate me although I suspect the FAA will pass some form of judgment on them in the upcoming months--if they have not already.  I will say this; the use you mentioned in your post seems to be a very logical application of that technology and great fun also.

Wearable technology just does NOT appeal to me at this time although; I have considered a GPS watch for my youngest granddaughter.  Every lose one of your children or grandchildren in a department store?  Two year olds move much quicker than I ever did.

Excellent post.

Making the ringly thing fit any finger should not be any challenge since jewlers have been doing that for a whole LOT of years. The electronics is all in the head of the ring, so the ring portion is simple to adjust. But I find the whole concept to be just another toy for those folks with excess money to waste. Smart phones already have vibrate modes to announce messages, and all of the users who I know are attached to their phones. So what is to be gained by having the ring deliver an announcement, except to show off for those nearby? 

Consider that just because a product can be designed and built does not mean that it is not a waste of resources and time. The ring is certainly a good example of that.
