bluetooth RingThis may not be the One Ring to rule them all, but it could definitely allow you to have the power of controlling many devices with the flick of your finger.

Depending on the gestures you make, you have the ability to send texts, turn on your music, and check emails just by simply writing in the air.

The Ring will alert you of new texts and emails by either vibration or LED lights that light up on the side of the Ring. According to Logbar, the Ring can perform up to 1000 gestures before the battery needs to be recharged. There are so many “pros” to this device it’s hard to tell you about them all in this article.

Handshake Ring
Here’s an interesting social network concept device. The handshake ring is like one of those James Bond gadgets, where you shake hands with your secret spy contact and instead of passing money or a secret note, you exchange digital contact details.

The rings exchange and store your information automatically for you to browse through later using the card. The power used to operate the ring is generated from the users body temperature so no plug or batteries are required.

iRing concept ring that controls iPod and iPhone media devicesTake a look at this iRing design concept by Victor Soto used to control any Apple media device including iPods and the iPhone. The ring charges in its own custom-sized cradle and has a small OLED display inside the small Apple logo that indicates it’s current status of play or pause, which can then be toggled by touch. Sliding a finger across the ring one way or the other will adjust the volume and the ring can be locked by squeezing your finger to avoid inadvertent touches.

Ring Around Your Pulse

Heart Monitor RingUsually when you or your doctor take your pulse you would use a blood pressure cuff, a clip on one of your fingers or even just counting the beats on your neck the old fashioned way. Taylor Gifts is bringing the pulse counting business into the 21st century with its heart rate monitor ring so you can always tell what your rate is with just a quick glance.

While its bright red design won’t win any style awards it does get our approval for displaying your pulse in large enough numbers (between a range of 30 to 250 beats per minute.) If you want to use the ring in conjunction with an exercise routine the ring also features a stopwatch mode and a timer mode so after you do your workout you can check back and see what your vitals are like.

The Ring Thing Bottle Opener

Posted in Rings by Chetz on November 13th, 2006

Ring ThingThis picture is pretty self-explanatory, but just in case you don’t make the connection this is a ring that has an opening on one side of it that works as a bottle opener. A little torque while wearing the Ring Thing on your “social” finger and you have solved the problem of always having to look around for an opener or some particularly strong surface area every time you want to open a bottle.

I have to say that this looks a little more sanitary than the bottle opener sandals we posted about in early September, but it may require some strong fingers. Finally some bling that has form and function, adn to top it off it only costs you around 10 bucks. The Ring Thing comes in sized from 9 to 14.

Thanks for the suggestion, Jeff!
