Samsung files patent application for a smart ring that could control your phone, T.V. and appliances
The filing uses an illustration to show how the presence of the ring would open a special menu on a smartphone, which would allow you to turn on and adjust your television, audio system, blinds, and any connected appliances. Samsung also noted in the filing that the ring would connect to social media sites like Facebook to open up a whole new set of functions for the device.
The patent was filed by Samsung back in June, and there is no guarantee that the smart ring listed in the patent application will ever see the light of day. Still, a number of tech giants including Apple, Google and Microsoft are working on similar intelligent devices that someday might adorn your finger.
