Sounds like a good idea to add some functionality to a ring rather than just park some precious gemstones there so Kudos to Ringly on that score. But on the downside, they could have added more functionality to the ring. Maybe a tiny screen on the side to tell you what the notification is about or a voice message delivered through a tiny speaker in the ring would be a good start. The features of this one are quite limited especially considering that you will still need to have your phone nearby anyway.

I want to see more wire memory in future from them

While it was clear from the video that the metal strip was constricting, I think the demonstration would have been more compelling if repeated constrictions/expansions were filmed to demonstrate the back/forth effect and capabilities.

Muscle wire always amazes me. I was in a state of awe when we used it the very first time in college and it still makes me astonished even after all these years. The on/off cycle really annoys me; it takes the smoothness out of the system as one can actually observe the conversion.

Muscle wire is fun. I remember using it in some labs at school. Power demand makes it impracticle. But still fun!
