(Newser) – Some might say it's "one ring to rule them all," as in: the time, your music, a camera, phone calls, text messages, emails, social media notifications, and a number of other things. Yes, we've gone from smartphones to smart watches to smart glasses and now we've reached smart rings. The "Smarty Ring," which you can use to tell time and control your smartphone (meaning you can get the above-mentioned notifications on it, or use it to make and receive calls) is available for $175 after a successful crowdfunding campaign, Ars Technica reports. If you order it (here), you should get it around April of next year. And no, you're not the only one to find this whole thing rather ridiculous: Business Insider's headline is, "No, This 'Smart Ring' Is Not A Joke." (Also in the works: a smart wig.)

This just to make everyone more dependable and addicted to smart phones. Imagine what would happen if everyone quit subscription.

Other than being a remote control for your music - assuming you left it plugged into a speaker across the room - what the hell is the point? You can't stand not knowing if you've got a new email or facebook status update while your phone is a mere 30 feet away? GO READ A BOOK UNDER A TREE FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE
