Check out this analogue ring by Etsy user Analogue Aesthetics.

analogue ring
analogue ring – pretty cool but a bit bulky perhaps (14mm height)…

The product page reads:

Sterling silver ring with built-in microphone that works! Crafted by hand, this version is the brushed finish look with a brushed perforated aluminum lid. Looks fantastic when used as a microphone or in standby mode as jewellery.

The ring comes in a US size 8 and a connection cable (3.5mm minijack) is included in the package so you can start recording right away. Price tag: $105 USD.

There’s a brushed version available as well.

External recycle bin

Cagnina Design has developed TEMPO, an external hard drive storage device which automatically stores your files as they are deleted.

TEMPO – see all those LEDs?

From Technabob:

Designed to mimic the look of a trash can, TEMPO is a unique hard drive storage device. Intended to protect the user from accidentally deleting files, it can also be used as an external storage device. As you delete files, they are automatically copied to the TEMPO. As it fills up, led’s light the “can” from the bottom up, informing you of how much space is available.

The device is bluetooth powered, so no wires! I wonder how much it is going to cost with all those LEDs on it…

The Sitting Pose Corrector and Reminder Alarm – Cute?

Andrew @ OhGizmo! writes:

I can only assume a built in gyro or something related to that bulge of plastic on the neck strap detects when you’re leaning too far forward and when that happens an alarm will sound alerting you to sit or stand up straight. Presumably the alarm sound is something like a bird chirp otherwise I have no idea where the bird-design comes from. It also appears to have a basic LCD display showing the time and allowing you to setup other alarms as needed.

The Sitting Pose Corrector and Reminder Alarm is available from DealExtreme and costs $8.43.
