Geak Unveils NFC Smart Watch and Contactless Ring

Geak unveils NFC smart watch and contactless ring - RF CafeYou have probably heard proposals for 'smart guns' that will only fire when owners wearing special rings are in possession.

Initially, the ring will only work with Geak's devices, but plans are in the works for more widespread adoption.

Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
