We're entering into a new phase of our relationship with technology. We want to be connected, but not all the time. We still enjoy Twitter but we're not updating it every time we blink like we used to and Facebook relationship status updates are no longer treated like our very own personal soap opera. Now digital detoxes are available in App form and luxury holiday form, in short, taking time for yourself outside of the interwebz is encouraged.
Of course it's a little unrealistic to completely disconnect in the current day and age and sometimes simple luxurious include; having your phone on silent, turning off notifications on particular apps (Whatsapp) or just keeping it in your handbag (what a time to be alive guys). Plus, let's face it, there are certain things we DO want to be kept updated on. That's where Ringly comes in, they're using pretty rings and turning them into our personal little helpers. Like a better Siri.
"Ringly creates jewelry and accessories that connect to your phone and notify you about the things that matter most. Put your phone away and enjoy the moment. Ringly connects to your phone and sends you customised through vibrations and light, creating smart jewellery and accessories that keep you effortlessly connected to the things that matter most."
Their core belief is that "technology can be more discreetly integrated into our lives", here for it. And it doesn't hurt that they look cuter than two cute things. All we need now is a compact mirror for skype and the ability to have conversations via the mic on the ring. Then all my Totally Spies fantasy will have officially come true.

You can buy me one if you want.
