Showing/hiding the rings, rotating them clockwise and counterclocwise, approaching the device quickly or exiting the camera field view, can also be detected by the apps, further enhancing the level of touchless control you can do with iRing.”

Flexible all-carbon electronics bio-integrated

“…researchers have developed a new method for synthesizing entire integrated all-carbon electronic devices, including transistors, electrodes, interconnects, and sensors, in a single step, greatly simplifying their formation. The inexpensive electronic devices can then be attached to a wide variety of surfaces, including plants, insects, paper, clothes, and human skin.”

“In one study, people were easily tricked into justifying choices they didn’t actually make about who they found attractive. Under some circumstances, we exhibit what is known as choice blindness: we seem to have little or no awareness of choices we’ve made and why we’ve made them. We then use rationalisations to try and cover our tracks.”
