Our first project, RingU, is an interactive ring, where 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.
RingU is developed for anyone in a relationship, or family, who sometimes during the day cares to share their warm feelings but cannot be together because they are busy. With RingU, you’ll always be able to share your feelings with your friends, family, or loved one. We also target artist/idol fan, where with RingU they can actually feel a virtual hug and emotionally communicate with their idol.
“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.
The ring comes with a corresponding private social network 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.
How RingU helps lovers to be always connected
We think that there are limitless possibilities of RingU to discover, and together we can make our world even more connected, with RingU.
