Do you fidget when you think? Maybe you have a nervous habit or action that you subconsciously do when the wheels in your head start churning. Twirling hair (well, for long haired folks), messing with fingernails, the perpetually bouncing “nervous knee”, flipping your pen, you name it. We are creatures of unintentional habits some of which seem to be directly connected to thinking. It’s almost like we have to stoke the fire in our mind with these interesting actions. Playing with jewelry is no exception to these habits.
Glen Liberman of Kinect Design Studio is intrigued with the complimentary motion of gears and the like. So much so that he created a ring which will fit right into these unintentional habits and hopefully stimulate your brain. The patented Gear Ring®, $165 on Kinect’s site, consists of micro sized gear mechanisms which turn when the outer edge of the ring is spun. Watch the video below to see the ring in action. As the creator states it is “complex enough to play with, yet simple enough to wear.” Made from matte stainless steel and available in a range of sizes, the Gear Ring can suit just about anyone’s need to unique and keep the gears moving – literally and figuratively.
