My Precious!

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. :)

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.

@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.

Thats really very great and interesting controlling the smart devices just by the finger . But i guess this ring will be used by the people who dont have extensive usage of these devices those who have extensive usage this ring cant replace the actual usage this is what i beleive maybe not .

That's great Liz. I am excitedly waiting for that story. I presume it will be even better than the Ring, as people who don't want to wear the ring could also be aided.
But i think the Ring makes more equipment available to us, whereas the technology you are talking about will only be limited to the device it's attached with. Nonetheless we will talk about that when the details get posted.

I agree, a.saji, especially when you are asking someone to wear something like jewelry as the main point of control for their smartphones and other devices. Comfort is as important to the design as the technology and the fact that the device works.

Yes, they are different approaches, Daniyal_Ali, and I think they each have their benefits and their limitations. I suppose it will just depend which works better and what kind of user experience people prefer.

I am not sure what you mean, Debera. You think this will just be a limited-use control device rather than something people use all the time? I guess I can understand that, but depending on the ease and comfort with which Ring can be used, I think the idea is to use it all the time for control of multiple devices. But perhaps I am not understanding your point correctly, so do clarify if you can.

Ugly little thing to wear on your finger all day. Why not stuff the electronics into a watch bracelet?
