We are happy to inform that we have completed the design of a completely new version of the Moodmetric Ring! It has several improvements compared to the current beta, that was introduced at the end of 2014.
The beta version is fully functional and has been heavily tested for ten months. Both the ring and app have worked very well and according to all expectations.
We have received a lot of feedback, which mostly concern about aesthetics of the ring. Size matters and we have continuously worked on getting the ring even smaller. The main factor is the performance of the electronics module, leading to what kind of battery it requires.
After a six month development process we have managed to significantly reduce the size of the module, hence the “stone” of the ring. This is a great achievement and we are proud to present a perfect example of an electronics miniaturisation project. After all, a reference device used in laboratories is size of a butter packet! In the picture below the Moodmetric ring on a very narrow finger:
New features include an alternating current measurement, which prevents oxidation of the ring. Charging and low battery indication leds are added based on the test user feedback, and several other small adjustments have been made.
The Moodmetric app is free to download from the AppStore and works together with your ring immediately. It shows live emotion data always when you have the app open. The continuously updating Moodmetric number tells your emotional intensity level and is comparable among different users.
The design and visual aspects are extremely important for us. However, we can not yet provide as many design variants as requested. We hope to be in a position to offer a selection of rings to fit the taste of both women and and men in the near future, and will let you know as soon as we have news about this.
We will produce an initial batch of the new, smaller version of the Moodmetric ring in just a couple of weeks.
