The Orb (Orbital Ring Bluetooth) is both a ring, and a wireless bluetooth headset / earpiece. When not in use, the ORB
bluetooth can be worn as a finger ring, and when you need to use it as an earpiece you simply twist it open and place it on
your ear. The deluxe edition includes a FOLED (Flexible Organic Light-Emitting Diode), screen that will give you caller ID
and calendar reminders. The deluxe version is also planned to include voice to text ability, so that you can communicate
easily without having to remove the ring from your finger.
How Does the ORB Bluetooth Work?
The ORB Bluetooth headset works by using a new surface sound conducting technology that sends sound through the soft
tissue on the back of the ear; this is actually a much more accurate way of hearing, and eliminates the discomfort of placing
an earpiece inside the ear itself.
When wearing the ORB Bluetooth as a ring, it will vibrate if you get a call, event reminder, or text message. With the deluxe
version, you can simply glance at your ring to see the incoming message or the phone number of the caller. To accept the
call, you simply twist the ORB open and slip it over the ear. To decline a call, you can slide your finger over the screen on
the ORB Bluetooth device while it is still on your finger.
Sizing & Pricing of the ORB Bluetooth
When the ORB headset becomes available there will be many different sizes and styles to
suit both men and women. Hybra plans to start selling the ORB Bluetooth headset in 2016,
the projected price for the base model $229 and the deluxe models $275. Limited-Edition,
build to suit models will feature precious metals and decorative gemstones. The price of
these will depend on the materials used.
BLE and NFC
The ORB has additional functionality that allows multi-modal security and
connectivity to unlimited interfaces. Using a unique spring prong functionality in
conjunction with voice coding, the ORB can ensure user security during all information
