"Ring Ring"

A Phone - 2 rings + a watch

As you may know the general sign for phone, is where you stick your little finger + thumb out and hold your hand up to your ear like a phone. I propose that the old mobile will be replaced, with two rings.

One of the rings will be worn on your thumb and the other on your little finger.You will speak into the little finger ring and hear from the thumb. Calling and Texting will be voice activated.

The signal will come from a bond style watch worn around the wrist along with camera. A more slimline version could scrap the watch.

       I am strangely attracted to this idea. No more wondering where to keep my cell phone when I don't want to carry a purse and have no pockets.

       Tough nuts for those of us who lost fingers on the bomb squad, though.

       A Japanese telephone company has almost baked this. Their version has an even more halfbaked feature, which is you have to stick one finger in your ear to hear the phone. (The wristwatch component transmits vibrations through your hand). No rings in their version, though. See link.

       What happens if you hand cramps up, can you switch hands, very much like switching ears? [+-]

       I came up with a concept also called the 'ringring', and although its dissimilar to yours, DrCurry annotated the same idea you're on about........coincidence?
