If you like it, now all you have to do is tap your ring on it. A husband and wife are launching a new smart ring that lets you makes transactions and open doors.
â€œWe built an identity ring that lets you put all of your credit cards, passwords, your car keys, your house keys on it. And everything is done with a simple tap of your hand so everything is gesture based,â€ Token CEO Melanie Shapiro told FOX Business Tuesday.
The ring is now available for $250 and works anywhere that Apple payments or NFC payments are accepted.
â€œThe ring works over Bluetooth, Internet C, anything thatâ€™s Bluetooth like logging into a website or unlocking a car, you just knock twice and it will authenticate you. Anything Internet C like contactless payments or the access card you use to get into the office, you just put your hand over the reader,â€ said co-founder and CTO Steve Shapiro.
The ring also has a fingerprint scanner on the inside so that the ring is only responsive to the individual it belongs to.
â€œIf you take it off, it doesnâ€™t work, itâ€™s just a piece of jewelry,â€ explained Melanie Shapiro.
