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.

Wire memory tweaks me always, it's funny. I ike it. This gadget Freak case number 258 by which it's trying to demonstrate the muscle actuate biped. The best writing service online is doing such an excellent job for the student all over the country to manage their esssay in a professional way from the highly qualified expert writer. 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!
