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. :)
