How many messages do you receive a day, through one social platform or another? Not to mention your mobile? It’s only getting worse. The average teen checks his or her smartphone every six minutes, so as not to miss a critical message. And seriously, how many of those message are really important to you? Enter Ring Blingz, a social notification platform cleverly disguised as a piece of customizable jewelry – be it a ring, bracelet or belt clip (for the Y chromosome crowd) – that keeps you connected and let’s you know via a light or vibration, when you’re being pinged by someone who is important to you – and your phone’s not easily accessible. Named by Wearable Week as the Best Newcomer at SXSW, and at a $40-$60 price point, it’s within the budget of the 40 million teenagers in the US (there are 700 million of them worldwide) and easily will be one of the no-brainer gifts of choice for anyone angling for the title of Coolest Auntie or Uncle.
