If you’ve ever found your hands taking up too much screen real estate while checking your phone, then So Pro might be just what you’re looking for.
So Pro is a wearable smart ring that allows you to wirelessly interact with your Bluetooth-enabled device (be it Android or iOS). With it, you can scroll up, down, and do some basic actions using your favorite apps. Think of it as a really basic remote control.
The So Pro seems to work best on mobile social media apps like TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter – where the main methods of interaction are liking and moving between posts. Since the ring connects to your devices via Bluetooth, you don’t have to worry about installing an app to control your other apps.
While you can use it to take photos, change music, and swap presentation slides, the three-button nature of the So Pro can make things a bit limited when it comes to applications that require more interaction. As such, you’ll want to use the So Pro exclusively when you’re mindlessly scrolling through social media sites or giving a slide presentation. This, however, doesn’t make the So Pro unworthy of your big attention as it still has a lot to offer.
According to the So Pro Kickstarter page, the ring “is crafted with delicate electroplating technology” which protects the lithium-ion battery and gives it a glossy look.
In terms of longevity, the So Pro’s battery has a 7-day standby life and can be recharged up to 500 times before needing to be replaced. It’s can also be submerged in water up to 3 meters for 30 minutes. You can’t go swimming with it, but the So Pro can definitely survive accidental hand washing.
The So Pro looks to be a nifty accessory with very specific applications. Created by Zanco Innovation, this wireless control ring is up on Kickstarter with current funding of US$1,771. It needs a total of US$6,422 fund for its remote dreams to be realized and it still needs to fill a large part of its pot. With its promising feature, nonetheless, we know that it’ll overflow one of these days once the world has learned what it can do.
