Caught wind of this interesting concept from Bck which is inspired by gestural hand movements.

The two rings which are designed to be worn on the thumb (speaker) and pinkie finger (microphone) could also double up as a fashion accessory. Sensors in the rings would allow you to answer the call by simply flicking your fingers into the ‘phone’ position.

One slight flaw with this design, what is the actual point of using it if it doesn’t leave your hands free?
