About

3D Render

 Just point and shoot, and viola you are in control of your TV, your lights, and your life.

IRring is a wearable remote control for your TV, DVD, Blueray player, cable box, and most any appliance.

Let's face it. Sometimes you just want to be a potato on a couch. We will get you close with IRring, you set the buttons you want on your ring remote. 

For you Diyers and hackers and programmers, Imagine the possibilities! Since it is all open source programming the possibilities are endless.

Remember that scene in spider man when he was doing the corny finger point... no... well anyways, imagine if that the finger point did something, like turned on light, a fan, set off confetti, a cannon fire....

We are working on a multi-medium platform for your point-and-shoot needs. IRring is super handy and easy to integrated not your arduino projects. Just write like any other program and upLoad. And if you haven't heard it's open source. IRring as of now is infrared based, but with your help we want to bring you:

Ble (bluetooth wireless)  BleRing

Radio controlled RcRing

Our ring is not just for our designs. It has a programming port. You can program it just like any other arduino using a programmer!! You can use it for any and every arduino project!! At the heart of all our products is a powerful Atmega micro processor.

The Journey
The Journey
The Destination
The Destination

We have a working project that we are proud of. But we need your help to take our working project to a beautiful, affordable, fun product.

We need your support to :

1. Wrap up our ring designs.

2. Order minimums quantities of electronic components ( resistors, ir leds, chips, etc.)

3. Begin working on other rings, bracelets and kits such as Bluetooth, RF, and others for our home automation line.

Programming IRring

**IRring works with most models of TVs, Blu-ray players, DVD players, cable boxes, and pretty much any infrared receiver. But if you were wondering here is a list of tested equipment to date:

Vizio TV

Philips HomeTheater (need to save play and pause as separate codes)

Apple TV

Sony TV

Many others

** The models shown are using an external battery. There are two options we are working with, a rechargeable battery and a replaceable coin cell battery. Rechargeable are our goal but it really depends on our stretch goals.

** Our first run models are going to be 3d printed. This is really cool because it means it is going be made here in the USA.

Thanks out for support supporting our Journey!

Risks and challenges

Our project like all others has risks, and it IS a project. We might lose some fingers(

We will not however lose your trust. Until this project is satisfied my team and I are dedicated to your satisfaction.

All of what we are making and providing is easily within our means and know how. Something that does not fall "within our means" is what we do not know. Yes, we are admitting to general, not intentional, ignorance, which happens to be a fault of most, if not all of us humans.
