This smart ring aims to help the blind
The Orii ring allows people to take phone calls, handle text messages and interact with a phone's digital assistant, all by transferring sound to a user's ear through bone conduction.
The ring has been designed by Hong Kong-based start-up called Origami Labs. Peter Wong, who is the father of the firm’s co-founder Kevin Wong and happens to be blind, inspired it.
The software on the smartphone reads the icons and the texts. Only the user can hear the information conveyed by the ring.
The Orii ring is expected to reach the market by February.
