Orii, a voice-powered smart ring, lets the users make and receive calls just by putting a finger to their ear, a feature possible due to bone conduction technology that relays the vibrations through hands to the little ear bones.

In its functioning, Orii is similar to a smart watch that pairs to a phone via Bluetooth and can be used to make calls, send messages and check notifications without looking into the phone display, writes New Atlas.

Orii, currently raising funds via Kickstarter campaign, could be priced at about $99 when it hits the market sometime by February 2018.
