Interchangeable ring size solution  

After consulting this idea with our producer we found solution. We would like to offer a silicone insert ring as on picture below.

Each INSTA_RING set will contain one insert. You will be able to reduce diameter of your INSTA_RING for 2mm, 3mm or 4mm- you decide in survey after campaign.

Fish eye lens for taking even more interesting photos and videos. The lens will be mounted on a high quality polymer clip. 

 Each INSTA_RING set will have a fish eye lens :)

 We have done a lot of prototyping for past two years based on ardiuino to beta versions which we gave to our friends to test them out on their 2018 summer holiday. We have done our homework when it comes to design and choosing the best components of INSTA_RING. We are really proud of our final outcome.

I was fed up to carry the smartphone in my hand in order to catch the prefect moment on my trips. I challenged my friends to make my wish come tru. Luckly some of them joined my team. We had lots of fun, arguments and even more fun. And here we are with INSTA_RING.
