The NFC Ring that unlocks doors, mobile phones, transfers information and links people.

NFCRing

One NFC Ring to rule them all? A kickstarter project is underway to create the mass production of the first NFC ring. As the introduction to the page says it can “be used to unlock doors, mobile phones, transfer information and link people. Best of all the NFC Ring glides right onto your finger – no updates, no charging, and no fuss.”

The designers say that the ring will be able to do a number of things including; unlocking your smart phone or tablet, using the ring to unlock your front door, and sharing and transferring of information. The NFC Ring comes with two inlays, public and private so you can keep personal information as private as you want. Your NFC Ring can also be used to start apps with custom settings (parameters), making it a really easy way to personalize the app experience to match your ring. Best of all – the ring needs no charging at all.

Below is a video that covers the basics but I urge you to visit the NFC Ring Kickstarter page. There you can find plenty more information as well as various videos outlining the product and its potential applications. The initial idea was to raise about £30,000 but with a few days left to go they are now on £154,330.

Good luck to them, I say!
