ORII is a smart ring that allows the user to handle phone calls just by touching the fingertip to the ear. ORII uses Bluetooth technology to connect to the user’s phone, and advanced bone conduction technology to relay sound. Sound is transformed into micro-vibrations that travel from the ring to the tip of the user’s finger, and from the tip of the finger to the inner ear through the bones of the skull. ORII offers a new and intuitive way of handling calls that requires few, simple and discreet gestures. At a time when texts, chats, instant messaging and other visual technologies have almost replaced oral communication, the ORII ring gives us back the power and individuality of our voice. ORII won the 2018 iF Design Award. Photography: Chow Wing Sing.
