Wouldn’t it be cool to wave your hand and turn on your living room lights? It would almost be like magic! Well, Nod wants to do exactly that and more. Nod is an advanced gesture control ring that allows you to engage with your world around you like magic. It’s a universal controller so that you have effortless communication with all of your smart devices like phones, tablets, watches, home appliances, TVs and more. It works with phones and tablets running iOS and android, computers running Mac OSX or Windows, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi-enabled bulbs, Nest thermostats and so much more.
Designed to be worn on your index (or pointer) finger, the ring is offered in more than 12 sizes so you can easily find the perfect fit. And each one ships with three interchangeable inserts that work for righties and lefties to find a snug fit. And the best part about Nod is that you don’t have to learn crazy hard gestures to control your environment. All you have to do is just point and gesture naturally, as you would while using any given specific advice. Like you’d rotate your hand to adjust the temperature on your thermostat or point to the TV to turn it on.
Nod can easily be worn all day since you can use it in all aspects of your day – from work to play. It’s waterproof up to 169 feet so you don’t even have to take it off when you wash your hands or go fro a swim! If you have more than one Nod user at home, all of you can easily control all the devices at the same time. Like when controlling a smart TV, everyone can see user names on the screen to know who’s using it. If you want to use Nod as a game controller, you can wear a couple of them at once! Wearing two Nods for games allows you to move around and shoot. Then when you need to charge it, just pop it in its box to charge or connect it to either a wall outlet or a computer via a microUSB cable. Nod can be pre-oreder for $149.
