Smart Ring Relays Your Phone Message via Bluetooth (and Hobbit) Technology

Say hello to the one ring to rule them all. And guess what? You don’t have to travel to Mordor to steal it from Sauron.

This little digital ring isn’t something new, other models are out there, but this one is just too cool to pass up. It’s called: The Ö ring. It is a Bluetooth smart ring sporting a tiny 64×32 monochrome OLED display with a touch-button control.

According to CNET:

The Ö ring can display animations along with phone notifications. It offers about four hours of continuous display time, though you’re more likely to use it off and on. It has about a day’s worth of standby time. That’s not terrible when you consider how small the thing is. There’s not exactly a lot of room to cram battery power into there.

No word yet on when/where/or if you’ll be able to actually obtain this ring. Kevin Bates, the creator, has been gathering manufacturing quotes, which he describes as “attractive.”

Best feature about this ring? I can display Elvish notifications, for all your Rivendell needs.
