Unlike other rings, Nod bridges wearables, phones, PCs and even television sets, to be a universal controller. This compact device is waterproof up to 5ATM, with IP68 dust and water protection. Once charged, it’s good for about 24-hours of continuous use. Inside, you’ll find a variety of motion sensors, including a nine-axis accelerometer, along with two Cortex M3 processors. On the exterior, there is a touch-bar and extra button controls. The ring is worn over your forefinger, and is probably as close as consumers will get to Minority Report-style technology.

The Nod ring has 32,000 dpi accuracy for movement, so accurate that it could be used for gaming.

Other practical uses include: ambient control of a home, such as turning on and off lights, adjusting temperature, or unlocking a door.
