Take Gestures to a Whole New Level with Logbar’s Ring

Smartwatches have been a hot topic over the past year, and as more companies turn to wearables to pull consumers in, we’re starting to see some interesting concepts. Ring by Logbar is the newest piece of wearable tech to pique our interest, and it’s the first true smartring we’ve seen.

Ring by Logbar is a Bluetooth ring that looks like a simple silver band. Underneath its smooth exterior you’ll find a surprisingly high-tech device as Ring packs a battery, motion sensors, and LED’s along with a touch sensor and vibration function.ring.kickstarter

Gestures are the name of the game with Ring as it allows you to pull of some cool tricks including turning on appliances, mid-air text transmission, payments and alerts. The Gestures can be customized by using a smartphone or tablet and Ring is said to be compatible with Google Glass and smartwatches which would really allow you to do some interesting things in case writing in mid-air isn’t cool enough.ring.logbar

Now for the most important part – the price. If a new gadget is too pricey (original Galaxy Gear) it’s going to turn a lot of people away, but that’s not going to be the case with Logbar’s Ring. At the time of this writing there are around 1,500 ‘early bird’ spots left that let you snag the Ring for $165 while the next tier comes in at $185. At the moment, the Ring only works with devices running Android 4.4 or iOS7 although Windows Phones and the Ring Hub is listed as coming soon.  ring-2

Logbar’s Ring can be used in several different ways, and while a lot of us may not walk around gesturing into space, it’s a cool little gadget that’s bound to turn some heads. It will definitely be interesting to see what developers can do with Ring once they get ahold of the SDK. The Ring’s Kickstarter has already managed to surpass their $250,000 goal by raising $446,053 with 30 days still left on the clock. Pretty safe to say, people are excited about this one.

If you’re interested in picking up Logbar’s Ring, you can head on over to their Kickstarter page and pick one up while you can. You won’t have to wait long to get one either as the first units are scheduled to ship out in April of this year.
