Nod – One Gesture Control Ring To Rule Them All

There’s no doubt that we’ll look back fondly on our days using a keyboard and a mouse and remember how things used to be. Smartphones and tablets are just the tip of the iceberg, enter a VR world (wearing some Oculus Goggles) and you’ll want a new way to interact. Heck, your TV is now a computer, what if you really did have one ring to rule them all?

Well now you do thanks to Nod, an $149 ring that really does give you the power to control all of your tech gadgets with a ring. Here’s what it looks like:

The idea is simple but very powerful if you look at how many ways this tiny device can be used. With a wave of your hand you can advance to the middle of your favorite Game of Thrones episode on your Smart TV or advance slides during a presentation. Here’s a quick look at the Nod in action:

While you might find it hard to imagine a world without a keyboard and a mouse, isn’t it even harder to imagine a world where something new and different comes along and changes the way we do things?

    This is very cool, and represents one more step towards a world of touchable holograms and nanoscale devices. Five years from now we’ll all laugh at the form-factors of 2014 devices.

    My precious!!!…..

    Sorry Morgan, Had to do it… :-)!!!!

    Looks promising, but I saw a keyboard a couple of times in the video… Now, if the thing would interpret what I write with my finger in the air, then it will turn to something even more interesting, right?

    The problem is that the principle of all good if used for what it has just come on the market, but it has more uses and one of them is in total control of the citizens of each country.

    Now all the sneak frame carries a smatphones have a hidden chip that can not see and know full traceability sn when shopping all brands have this, possibly without your knowing .
