Ö smart ring tells you the time, alerts you to messages and more
How would you like to wear a smart device on your finger? Kevin Bates, creator of the Ö ring, wanted to see how small he could make the technology necessary for this Bluetooth connected smart ring. Sporting a 64 x 32 resolution monochrome OLED display, the ring includes a rechargeable 40mAh battery that will give you 4 hours of use before requiring a charge. A 16MHz processor drives the device.

Production of the Ö ring will start sometime this year. With the ring you will be able to "Receive and reply to notifications from your cell phone! Display fun animations at a party!"

Bates hasn't revealed a price yet, probably because he is still running through quotes from manufacturers. We do have a video though, showing the Ö ring in action. Check it out and let us know if you think that there is a place in your life for a smart device worn around your finger.
