Digitus Ring

As electronic technology advances to the sub-micron level, it’s hard to imagine what kinds of things will exist in the future. Designer Charles Windlin believes we’ll see inanimate objects like rings take on highly compact and intelligent devices. The Digitus Ring concept holds 1,400 magnetic spheres each able to rotate in place. Micro computer circuitry controls which spheres turn to show their darker colored sides. A ring can suddenly tell time and possibly when your wedding anniversary is all without the use of power hungry LCD screens.

Designer: Charles Windlin

    jeff:
    that is correct. this technology is the basis of this concept.

    tthe assumption is that in the future it will be possible to produce sphere out of any desired material.

    e-ink needs a driver that is too large and wouldn’t fit into a ring…
