Robotic rings are a cool idea from the research teams at Keio University, they are made up with two eyes and a mouth the idea is that the rings enable the wearer to articulate better with their hands. We are not quite sure what the long term plans are for this device, but so far they look harmless enough, we hope!
According to the research team from Keio University this is what the robotic rings can do;
“When you wear this robot on your hand, it forms a medium for communication using the hand. So the robot serves as a device for enhancing the animal-like, imitative ways that people use their hands.”
“The robot has electromagnetic motors in the eyes, which are controlled electrically. This bottom part contains a microcontroller to move the eyes, and a battery.”
