Smart Rings


Embodied Presentations. Step by Step.
Datatouch explores

a new approach to delivering presentations: no clicker, no slides. Instead, the presenter wears a pair of smart, NFC-enabled rings that gives them intuitive, physical control of their presentation.

By moving across a sensor-equipped stage, the DataTouch wearer goes through each presentation topic step by step – literally. A tracker maps their position on stage to different points within each topic, so they can be approached, walked through or skipped with physical gestures. The presenter can also activate – or pick up – presentation topics by picking up NFC-tagged objects that will be recognized by the DataTouch rings.

The presenter gains the ability to embody their talk and improvise in the moment, rather than memorizing and sticking to a strict presentation sequence.
