What is RingU?
With RingU you can give your boyfriend, girlfriend, or best friend a remote hug no matter how far you are from each other. Anywhere you are, just hug the ring on your finger and at the same moment your significant other will feel that hug. For that very instant, you’ll feel each other’s warm presence.
What's so special about it?
“Hugging” the ring by one person transmits the touch sense digitally to the other ring which replicates the sensation. Using Bluetooth 4.0 the ring communicates with your smartphone which transmits the touch message over the internet. To pair two rings all you need to do it bring them together to trigger its powers, or, if they are remote - use the complementary mobile app.
What does the smartphone application do?
The ring comes with a corresponding private social network for two where you can send corresponding messages, photos, videos, together with your physical ring hugging. It also displays the time, date, and location of all your sent and received hugs. The ring synchronizes with the social network app seamlessly.
