NEW YORK – Can you think any ring also work as smartphone? At first glance, it looks like any other large piece of jewellery.
However, the gemstone in the Ringly had a hidden feature – it can tell you when someone is calling.
The ring can vibrate and light up when you receive a call or message, or even an alert from Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat – and you can even give friends their own colour so you know who is calling without having to take your phone out of your pocket..
The Ringly communicates with the phone via Bluetooth, talking to either an iOS or Android app.
Whenever a text, call, calendar alert, or email comes in, Ringly vibrates (like a phone would).
It can also react to push notifications from Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Snapchat, and more.
A special app allows users to customise their ring, changing everything from the number of vibrations to the colour for each caller.
