Apple join the race to release a smart ring
The iMakers have recently patented an 'iRing', which could take photographs, send messages and show you the time. It all sounds a bit like Russian spies, taking photos with a ring, doesn't it? Again, we're not talking about your hole. Stop it now.
Apple's device would allow you to dictate notes into it, and would have a tiny little touchscreen. Like most modern devices, it'll track your heart-rate and all that, with biometric sensors.
The patent says: "The use of touch-sensitive surfaces as input devices for computers and other devices has increased significantly in recent years. A user controls an external electronic device with a finger ring-mounted touchscreen that includes a computer processor, wireless transceiver, and rechargeable power source."
"The ring is worn on a first finger and receives an input from a second finger."
So there you have it. Of course, Apple aren't the first on all of this - Mota have already shown off their ring at a conference last year. And yes, you can watch a video all about it.
