My wife already has a ring on her finger that let her get many household chores done without lifting a finger.

Another item that I can attach to my finger and run all of my appliances.

All the GIS brought up was severely NSFW. What gives?

Yeah, typing that text waving your finger in the air was SO much more efficient...

There might be some cool stuff, and the broad range they applied it to was cool, but half of that stuff would have been easier to just do the way it's done now.

Green Lantern's ring basically turns him into Aquaman, but without the ability to talk to whales.

I don't see this replacing my wall-mounted keyboards anytime soon.

So S&T of the "smart [insert thing here] trend."  What's next?  Smart teeth?  Smart hair?

Some sad news: according to your girlfriend's "Smart Vagina[tm]" automatic foursquare check-ins, you're no longer mayor.

The only thing about his picture worth noting is how stupid his feet look as a result.

You're not doing it right...

I'm in for one...I'm planning on doing the first steps toward home automation this year (whole home HTPC, HDMI over IP, cat6 to every room etc.), and this may end up being fun to play with during that.  I imagine that is pretty much the target demo summed up..

Wouldn't a smartphone app be a lot less stupid?

Yet another way to connect to a refrigerator that knows when I'm low on milk.  Really, reading these articles, you'd think milk was the only thing anyone keeps in a refrigerator, and that we're all too stupid to figure out when to buy more.

If they'd invent a refrigerator that would know to toss that scarily bloated deli container of hummus way in the back, that might be something I could use.
