Technology is constantly proving its capacity to shrink in size, whilst becoming even more impressive, but if cellphones are going to get any more compact, the Ring Phone by Shan Chen might be the best shape to make them.

The smallest mobile phones on the market are still substantial enough to hold and interact with easily, but as soon as you get down to the scale of this invention, a means to grasp it is more than necessary. By combining jewelry and cellphone technology, the metal band keeps your miniature handset on your person at all times. Ditching the oversized smartphone prosthesis, communication becomes all the more streamlined.

The specifics of the Ring Phone by Shan Chen are not completely clear at this point, but the gem acts as both a camera and a projector, and the surface of the circle is touch-sensitive for function commands.
