    Nokia Research Labs has created a magnetic ring called Nenya, which can control your cellphone as you twist it on your finger. The ring looks like a standard piece of jewellery, but is actually a strong magnet. Moving the ring causes changes in the surround magnetic field, which are picked up by a bracelet worn by the user that connects to their phone via Bluetooth. You rotate the ring to pick from a number of options, which could be memorised, played as audio through headphones, or displayed on a screen, then push the ring towards your fingertip to select. The options could include asking a caller to hold, or updating your location on a social network. The researchers conducted two small trials and found that people could accurately position the ring in roughly 45 degree increments, suggesting that a ring-controlled menu could contain up to eight options. They will present their findings at the Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in Vancouver, Canada next month.

    Road SMS, an Android app from the Samsung App Store that you can lets you peer through the camera of your smartphone so you can see what’s coming up while you happily texting. The app uses the built-in camera to project an image of what’s in front of you and put it as a background on the screen while you are texting. It looks like an exclusive for Samsung App Store that came pre-installed in the Galaxy S i9000, but this being an Android app. I’m not sure if people would really use Road SMS regularly, but it is still a cool idea!

Oh and the antenna may not be functional, it is retractable!”
