The Information Ring

The Information Ring

This product is designed to exchange basic information with new people in the first meeting by shaking hands. The most essential part of a nomadic life is frequent travel, and nowadays, people are traveling more often and more easily. Increasing opportunities to travel indicate increasing opportunities of meeting new people, and expanding your social network.

Shaking hands is a customary greeting action. Handshake brings the action one step further by creating an information transfer function. Handshake operates when people first meet and shake hands, and the rings on their fingers gain the proximity to operate. The rings exchange the users’ information and store it while the users are shaking hands. The more people met, the more information transferred. When the users browse through the people they have met, the card displays the basic information that was stored in the ring. The power source originates from the human body temperature, so no plug is required.

    Even in this age of Big Brother and all of it’s invasive tactics, I think I like this idea, especially since you input what information you choose.  It may take a while for it to pick up some speed, but, I think I’m patient enough.  Nice find.  peace.

    Now this is interesting.  More convenient than just trying to jot down someone’s information on paper or a cellphone. But here is a catch, if you don’t want to know someone you just don’t shake there hands or what?

    I think this is a great networking tool that people will latch on to in the future.  Chocolate: I guess you just offer them a big smile, a wave, the other hand or the pinky finger…tee hee!
