Patent reveals Samsung's plan for a smart ring

29 December, 2015
Rather than a notification/fitness tracking device like a smartwatch, the ring will be all about controlling other smart devices.

MdN8, 29 Dec 2015What's next? Earring? Hair band? Tongue piercing?Yes. Yes. Yes and yes. Samsung and the other manufacturer are entering the wearable market. Don't tell me you didn't expected this to happen any sooner. Wearable technology has been rumors for years. It is 2016 a few days from now. That is the power of IoTs. Time for the future tech to rise. Smartring would be nice to open locked doors and cars. Unlocking smartphones and laptops. Main function probably for security purposes. Passwordless environment. A new way to integrate Samsung Pay.

dbuyi, 29 Dec 2015let see apple suing us for the ring patentI dont think they will, the patents describe the functionality a bit differently, also Apples might be used to start the Apple Car. I doubt Samsung would be able to copy that very quick... ESP if Apple manages to keep it a secret until it's launch. Because then it would just be a major surprise no one was expecting.

  • AnonD-362866

Apple applies for Ring patent, Samsung follows suit soon after, lol
