Would You Wear an Apple Ring?

The Apple Watch has definitely made an impact in the tech world and the fashion world: Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, and Karlie Kloss have all been spotted wearing them. But what if there was an Apple Ring? 

This past Thursday, Apple applied for a patent for a "Ring Computing Device," according to Fashionista. The ring would essentially be a touchscreen you wear on your finger with wireless capabilities, and it would be able to communicate with other devices. Like the watch, it could have additional voice and motion-related input and a camera.

Forbes says the patent for the ring includes technology that would also allow you to write without pen and paper: "Simply writing a word with your ring-enabled finger will be enough to act as a modern input device for the paired device." Of course, applying for a patent doesn't mean the ring is on its way or will ever exist, but for now, it's fun to think about.
