Make Mini-Landscapes On Your Fingers With These Wooden Rings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So here’s a novel idea. Etsy seller ‘CliveRoddy’ makes some cool laser-cut high quality birch plywood rings that come in one of three shapes: tree, mountain, or house. You can then combine and stack any of the three to make cool little landscapes on your fingers. Each one of these rings comes in three versions, so in the end you’re left with quite a few possible combinations. It’s quirky and fun… and that’s really all there is to it. It would be better if these rings weren’t made from wood, and feature more things than the three available, but the idea is really neat. It’s $24 for a set of 3 rings, but that’s only of one kind. If you want to combine all three shapes, you’ll have to spend $72.

C-3PO And R2-D2 Wedding Bands For Star Wars Geeks

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 11.25.01 AM

These are a pair of nice-looking Star Wars themed wedding bands. One is made out to look like R2-D2 while the other C-3PO. Who wears which is entirely up to you of course, but if you’re enough of a geek, disagreement over this might just be enough to fuel endless arguments ultimately leading to your divorce… I mean, do you really want to give your wife the C-3PO ring, while keeping the obviously cooler R2-D2 for yourself?

They’re the work of jeweller Juan Hidalgo, and we don’t know how much they cost.

Qalo Ring: An Alternative to Typical Wedding Bands

Qalo Ring

 

Compared to men, women are more particular when it comes to jewelry. How many times have you heard one of your guy friends say that they’ve lost, misplaced, or banged up their rings so badly because he forgot to take it off while mountain climbing? The solution isn’t to buy a spare ring or wear it around your neck; no, it comes in the form of the Qalo Ring.

It’s a simple band that dudes can wear on their ring fingers without having to worry about possible wear and tear. Made from thick silicone, the rings are comfortable yet durable enough for active lifestyles. The best part? It’s only $20, so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank if you ever need to buy a replacement.

Now That’s One-of-a-Kind: Fingerprint Wedding Rings

Fingerprint Wedding Band

 

Looking for a ring that’s truly unique and one-of-a-kind for you and your partner? Then put your fingerprints on them! It makes sense, considering no one in this world has the same set of prints. Simply make a copy of your prints using ink on paper, scan them, and send them off to Adzias Jewelry Atelier, who will take care of the rest.

The rings can be personalized further since you have the option of engraving it with your initials, anniversary date, or whatever else you want to put on it. Adzias guarantees that the fingerprint grooves won’t ever fade, just like your love and devotion to one another.

The made-to-order fingerprint rings are priced at $1,480.

Gesture Sensitive Bluetooth Ring To Control All Your Electronics

logbar-ring

Judging by how easily the company has surpassed its crowdfunding goal, it’s tempting to believe that people are really hyped over a Bluetooth connected ring that can recognize gestures and control your various applications. We’re not really convinced yet, but we’re open to changing our minds. The device is called, quite simply, Ring, and is made by a company called Logbar. It contains an accelerometer, a Bluetooth chip, a vibrating mechanism, and a tiny battery. With it you can send texts, launch applications, make payments, and control external devices. Gestures are easily customized through the related application, and sensitivity and accuracy seem to be more than adequate. The point is, it seems to work, and appears sort of fun.

So what’s our issue with it? Well, aside from it being pretty “gee-whiz”, we just can’t imagine how this will be socially acceptable. Google Glass is already having some problems, so can you imagine a train car full of people with their index fingers pointed, air-writing their texts? Why not just text, then?

In any case, if looking odd in public is not a concern of yours, a $165 pledge will get you one.

LEGO Brick Ring Is Quirky, Not Altogether Useful

brick-lego-ring

It’s not that rings should be useful or anything; they’re adornments after all. But since the 2011-old LEGO Brick Ring does come with two LEGO-sized protrusions you’re going to be tempted to attach LEGO pieces to it. And that’s when you start “using” the ring, only there isn’t much you can actually do with it other than to perch bricks and Minifigs on it, to your heart’s content. That’s enough to sell us on it though, especially given the reasonable $41 price tag for a piece described as “bronze-infused stainless steel with visible print lines and a rough feel.” To be honest, it looks really nice and the pictures don’t do it justice, so hit the jump for a video to get a better idea what it looks like.

Awesome Ring-Worn Clock Could Be Real, Isn’t Yet

ringclock-xl

Here’s to hoping that an ambitious crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo not only reaches its funding goals, but that the product in question turns into reality even if funding is met (which is not always guaranteed). It’s called the Ring Clock, and is meant to be a time telling device worn on one of your fingers. It allegedly uses “ultra-thin mono-color LEDs” and a “6mAh, ultrathin rechargeable lithium polymer battery” to display the time at the twist of its body. The battery, though small, would be enough to give the ring one week of autonomy. Charging would be done wirelessly, through induction using the Qi standard and would involve nothing more than placing it on a charging plate. It’s an eye catching product, which would be sure to start several conversations at parties and altogether make you look like an Alpha geek.

But here’s the rub. The company is seeking $287,400 in funding. So far, the only concrete thing they have is a work-in-progress prototype which appears to be nothing more than the external body with laser cut numerals. They admit that they will use a third of the funds to complete said prototypes… so we’re not even sure if the concept can actually be pulled off. We’re not informed of any track record they may have, and considering how ahead of its time it is, we’re worried that even if they manage to reach their goal, that the Ring Clock will never be successfully manufactured. Still, this is the nature of crowd funding: to give an opportunity to people to produce innovative products when they might not otherwise have fit traditional criteria for doing so. Let’s hope they pull it off. It’s an $185 pledge to get in line for yours, which might arrive in April 2014 if all goes well.
