a ring that lets you know when your phone is going off
There are all sorts of things on the market that flash whenever a nearby phone is ringing...so build this into a fashionable ring. Whenever you're in hectic situation where you cant hear your phone ringing, you wait for your ring to ring. A small LED inbuilt into finger jewlery that flashes whenever
your phone goes off. Think of all the calls you wouldn'nt miss. Of course the ring would have a switch that could en/dis - able the function....so if you're expecting a call, just keep the phone in your pocket and you';re ring will let you know.
Useful add-on to this gizmo, methinks
