Origami Labs, a maker of connected devices, wants to shake the world with its latest smart ring – ORII. The company claims that it is the world’s first voice-powered ring that allows users to make calls, send messages, or command a voice assistant, such as Siri or Google Assistant, by simply placing their fingertip to their ear.
It uses a technology called “bone conduction” – one that is used in the medical field to create devices for the hearing impaired. ORII uses this technology that could transmit sound through the finger to enable on-the- go voice communication.
The product is currently listed in the Kickstarter and it is fully funded within 7 hours.
This company is also recognised by Hong Kong Business Magazine as one of Hong Kong’s top 10 Hottest Startups in 2017.
