Mechanize your bling with robotic rings
This ridiculous Japanese jewelry is aimed at helping people communicate. Wanna talk to the hand? Next time you're tempted to flip someone off, these robotic rings might help you get the message across. The prototype rings consist of motorized eyes and a mouth. Developers from Japan's Keio University showed them off at Interaction 2012 last month in Tokyo, along with a whack of other nutty notions like cyborg houseplants.
