“I can’t believe I locked myself out of my home/office/car,” is an oft-repeated refrain to the seemingly profitable locksmith industry and certainly one John McLear, a UK-based inventor, repeated one too many times. In search of a solution more feasible than a better memory, McLear decided to solve the problem of lost keys forever by creating the NFC Ring.
Funded by Kickstarter and now in full production, this nickel-free, titanium-based ring is programmed to connect to your smartphone. An added techie bonus is the NFC ring comes water resistant with no charging required.
Here are some of the awesome things this ring can do with just a wave of your hand.
