The Ring Wearable Input Device

Whatever you do, don’t confuse The Ring with the Ring. Because while one is a wearable input device that lets you control appliances and apps, the other is a psychological horror film that, like, kills you or something after watching it.

This much less murderous Ring is stuffed with smart sensors that give the wearer the ability to turn on a TV, use gesture control to type in midair, complete financial transactions, or receive incoming alerts with its built-in vibration and LED. You can also configure your own custom gestures using the companion app. It pairs with compatible Bluetooth 4.0 devices or to any Wi-Fi or IR capable device via a hub accessory. Right now, the Ring is compatible with iOS and Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0 support. Watch the video below to see this thing in action. [Kickstarter]
