Persuasive Intent
This may look like an ordinary ring but it does so much more. Scroll is an augmented reality controller that controls virtual objects and was created by designer Nat Martin. Scroll lets users virtually visualize everyday experiences. It controls objects in a virtual space, controls AR navigation, organizes schedules and can even change your music. How can a ring control virtual space? It works like a digital laser pointer that has touch sensors, a controller, and gyroscope measure motion. It only needs minimal gestures, like flicking your hand or using your thumb to scroll and tap. Scroll literally puts our information into perspective.
