The ORII Smart Ring is, first and foremost, an extension for your smartphone. With ORII, you can make phone calls, control a voice assistant, receive app notifications, and more.
The most unique part of ORII is that it functions as a microphone and loudspeaker for your smartphone - using bone conductivity technology to carry the voice audio between the ring and smartphone!
The bone conduction transducer devices in the ring convert electrical signals into vibrations that travel through bones in your finger, directly into the inner ear, bypassing the eardrums. This is why bone conduction, when appropriately applied, can offer adequate audio quality even in noisy environments. Besides, ORII uses a smaller actuator and lower power compared to other bone-conduction devices to minimize sound leakage.
The other features include gesture controlling functionalities to allow, for instance, waking up a voice assistant for checking time and messages, controlling music, and lights at home.
