If you've ever felt that watches are just too chunky for your delicate wrists, then this is a concept you will be looking out for: the Digitus ring. Designed by Charles Windlin, this smart piece of jewelry incorporates 1710 micro-spheres consisting of part magnetic and part decorative material.

The Digitus ring can thus be turned towards any direction and still display the time to its delighted holder. Additional data that may be generated on the innovative display include personal calendar information or even the artsy pattern of your preference.

Elegant and functional, the Digitus is a glimpse to an attractive jewelry market segment that designers around the world are clearly missing out on. Intelligence is steadily sneaking in every item in our everyday lives, and I would surely prefer this nifty concept to my ordinary brainless rind collection.
