Nat Martin, a recent graduate from the Royal College of Art, pioneered a ring design that lets users easily interact with augmented reality.

Previously, AR experiences were limited to smart devices, or handheld controllers, which can often act as a reminder of the artificial experience, limiting complete immersion. Martin's Scroll ring deviates from the traditional AR controller form, as it sits discreetly on a users' finger and is operated with minimal gestures. To control the AR experience, users simply flick, point, scroll and tap the ring. This innovative design promotes a more natural AR experience and would allow for users to integrate digital interacts into their daily lives, without drawing too much attention.

This intuitive ring design serves as an example of the potential impact AR experiences could have on our daily lives, better connecting us with the digital world.
