The company has verified Ring will (and already can) communicate and work with numerous platforms, including iOS, Android, PC, wearable devices, social media, home appliances and lighting — as well as other controllable tools and gadgets, like quadcopters. With all this connectivity, Ring users can do things like pay bills, send texts or turn on the TV with only a few simple gestures. Conceptually, Ring actually seems very cool.
However, "cool" doesn't necessarily translate to useful as far as the gesture tech world is concerned. Remember the totally awesome Power Glove for the original Nintendo? That thing was practically useless when trying to play those now-retro 8-bit games, especially when compared with the ease of just using a standard Nintendo controller.
