Rings are useless, don’t you think? Apart from identifying you are a married person, this accessory does not have much of a purpose. This little piece of technology may provide some use to this piece of jewelry.

The Ring Clock is what it is: a ring embedded with time-telling technology. Designed by Gusztav Szikszai, this allergy-free, stainless steel ring would tell you the current time of day by lighting up the corresponding numbers and symbols.

Users would be able to switch between blue and orange LEDs. The lights turn on by rotating the ring slightly, then turning the hour and minute segments (even the seconds if you prefer), to see which numbers light up. The Ring Clock turns itself off after a few seconds, saving a lot of energy.

The Ring Clock is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and can be charged wirelessly by placing it on its Qi charging pad, which also serves as the ring’s time adjuster as the user presses on the plus or minus buttons.

This Indiegogo project, which began in August, has exceeded its $287,500 goal. As of this posting, it has garnered $333,510 with 46 hours to go. The early adopter version starts at $195, with an expected shipping on April 2014. It will retail for $250.
