In a bid to provide a convenient solution for those with sight or hearing problems, tech start-up Origami Labs has launched a smart ring that gives hands-free control of a smartphone. The 'ORII' smart ring uses Bluetooth connectivity to allow users to control their smartphones using voice commands, Techcrunch reported on Friday. Available on crowdfunding platform Kickstarter.com for $99, the ring can be used to make calls, send messages, post to social media and more.

The device works using 'bone conduction' technology which allows the bearer to listen to a playback of what is running on the phone -- call, music or video -- by simply putting a finger to their ear. 'ORII' works directly with 'Siri' and 'Google Assistant' to give Android and iOS users full hands-free control of their devices' virtual assistant, while its companion app enables customised alerts via LED lights and vibrations, the report added.
