Keio University wearable robotic rings are creatively interactive jewelry pieces. These statements pieces have the ability to blink, wink and smile at the wearer and bystanders. This geeky gadget developed by a research group at Keo University is equipped with electromagnetic motors in the eyes, which allow movements to be electronically controlled by the wearer using a PC.

The "ring robotic" as it has been dubbed was designed as an entertaining communication device and incorporates robots into the way humans communicate with their hands. This robotic jewelry hopes to create a new form of interactive play and move wearable robots past the preliminary research phase and into widespread development.

These robotic rings allow for a robotic interaction and will hopefully advance technology as well as communications between human beings.
