Are smart watches too conspicuous for your taste and style? Well, how about a “smart ring”? While the marriage between jewelry and technology commenced with the introduction of the “smart watch”, a watch akin to a smart phone in terms of apps and telephony capabilities, the constant and inevitable evolution of technology has given birth to a new concept of much smaller package–a smart ring!
Touted as the first of its kind, the “Smarty Ring” was initially introduced with a fundraising campaign on the crowd funding site Indiegogo. With the tech market abuzz with smart watches, a Chennai-based entrepreneur raised funds to manufacture these innovative rings that allows its wearers to read texts, make phone calls, control their TV, and even much more cool stuff.

A smart ring is a high-tech ring that promises to replicate almost all the features of the latest crop of smart watches, without the need to strap that brick to your wrist. Moving one step closer to reality, this mind boggling concept has blown past its goal of raising $40,000 by garnering a whopping sum of $300,000. As the famous saying goes: “Good things arrive in small packages”, this compact stainless steel ring offers a multitude of eye-catching features with some of the being listed right here:

This 13 millimeters wide and 4 millimeters thick gadget enables a user to control his phone without actually touching it.
