The latest in what will be a long line of wearable technology is the Smarty smart ring.
Chennai-based Ashok Kumar wanted to raise $40,000 through Indiegogo for his Smarty Ring product and he’s already raised more than $300,000.
The stainless steel ring connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth (and an Android/iOS app) and lights up every time the wearer has a notification – anything from Facebook posts to emails and calls. It can be used as a remote control, make phone calls and control music. It also has a clever (or annoying…?) anti-theft feature which sounds an alarm if the phone is more than 30 feet away from the ring.
The ring is 13mm wide and features a built-in, curved LED screen.
