Ring Controls Smart Devices From Your Finger
3/10/2014

The Ring, currently the subject of a Kickstarter project, is designed to be the future of input for myriad devices. The metal ring, which the user wears on a finger, has sensors and electronics built in. It connects through finger and hand gestures and Bluetooth to smart devices, allowing people to communicate with them and perform all their usual functions without a keyboard, input screen, or mouse.(Source: Logbar Inc.)

@Elizabeth: Yes true size does play a major role even though its easy to use. User friendliness is something which has to be considered in a very major manner.

Thanks for your comments, Daniyal, I think it is a really interesting development as well, although i am not sure I would want to wear it all the time if it's too big and heavy. But I agree, there has to be a better way to interact with devices, and this sounds pretty good to me. But stay tuned for another story I have just written but which hasn't posted yet about technology like this for device control but that attaches to your device rather than your finger.

This sounds awesome Liz. I have a great feeling that this device is going to be a huge success, as it makes life very easy for the users.
Frankly, i am quite fed-up with the keyboard, mouse and even touch screens. Being a guy, it sounds quite weird but i am desperately waiting for the Ring!
On a lighter note, this will give engagements a whole new meaning. :)

With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
The Industrial Internet of Things is bringing a previously reluctant process industry into the wireless fold. The ability to connect smart sensors to the Internet has spiked the demand for wireless devices in process manufacturing, according to the new study from ARC Advisory Group.
Enterprising Tesla Model S owner Steve Sasman seems to have figured out a way of recouping some of the cost on his car by renting the trunk out on AirBnB, the room/house rental website.
Everyone has had the experience of trying to scrape the last of the peanut butter or mayonnaise from the bottom of a glass jar without getting your hand sticky. Inventor Ron Jidmar thinks he has a solution to all of that nonsense with a flexible jar design that can be squeezed with one hand to lift contents from the bottom to the top of a jar or container, leaving the other hand free to scoop the contents out cleanly.
