    So my friend just showed me this video, and I thought id share it with you! really cool idea. due to be released next year ! and at a reasonable price of $120.

    If your wondering what it is before watching the video, its a gesture control device that is compatible with a range of devices that helps you in your day to day life.

    so are half the new technology's that are coming out tbh. I think they have a really good idea. the fact you can use it whilst driving and jogging. pretty cool I think.I guess its one of those things either you like it,or you don't.

    The concept is good, but the ring itself is awkward.
    Is it waterproofed?
    It's clunky, and seems prone to being easy to break.
    Is it really that much of a trouble to just take one extra step, in return for a few hundred dollar device?

    I myself have a Pebble smartwatch, and I use it for notifications and the like, which is pretty helpful, and it looks pretty neat. I wouldn't say it's necessary, but it certainly is nice.

    I think it's a cool idea but not that useful. It kind of takes as long or maybe even longer than just using a remote.. also JEEZ what's with that girl's finger at 0:56?!?!?!

    Kinda weird, but it depends what it can actually do and how hard the learning curve is. People don't want to spend hours trying to figure out the right gestures and what they do

    The Pebble Steel is pretty much just aesthetic change, and then a few small functions more I've heard.

    True, however I did watch another video where they demonstrated some of the gestures, and they seemed pretty natural.

    One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all,

    and in the darkness bind them!

    That ring looks like witch craft to me :p
    How does it distinguish between normal hand movement and gestures? No matter how awkward some of those gestures looked, you still move your finger like that from time to time.

    neat concept though
