There are 2 simple variations inside the ring, the width of the band is either 7mm broad (the regular ring) or 12mm broad, the "Alpha guy size ring". This bigger ring is a just choice, at this time, if you would like to employ this ring program to unlock plus communicate with all the NFC chip built into the Samsung Galaxy S4 plus Blackberry Z10.

The rings have 2 NFC chips built into them, a public 1 along with a private 1. It is intended which the consumer encounters the public information ring outwards plus may share these NFC information with a fist-bump or closed hand. With the hand open, as well as the inside small NFC chip section exposed, you are able to share more private information plus unlock the individual NFC enabled equipment plus devices. That sounds easy plus intuitive.
