This month another new smart ring was launched on Kickstarter, called ORII it claims to be the “world’s first voice-powered smart ring that turns your finger into a smart phone”.
That’s quite the claim, however, they think it is capable of doing that with the technology that they have built into the ring.
By touching your ring wearing finger to your ear you can make calls, send messages, set reminders and more without the need to pick up your smartphone.
It does this with bone conduction technology, which will basically send audio from the ORII to your ear via the bones in between. To top that off, ORII also connects to your smartphone’s assistant.
This includes both Siri and Google Assistant, which can be activated by long press the ‘CapSense’ button on the ORII ring. It will then use the ring’s dual noise-cancelling microphones to allow you to talk to your personal assistant.
And of course, the design of the ring is also pretty important since you will be wearing it.
The creators of the project say that it is both durable and lightweight with a splash-proof and scratch-resistant design that has been made with anodised aluminium.
