The tiny gadget has a double insulated microphone so that you can make a clearly audible call, even in the noisiest pub. The 'ORII-ring' has been developed by the start-up Origami Labs in Hong Kong. CEO Kevin Johan Wong was inspired by his visually handicapped father. The ring does not need a screen and uses the same technology as a hearing aid: the sound is conducted through the bones to the cochlea in the ear. Also handy: the ring can be used under water. So after using the toilet, you can simply wash your hands.
