In the wake of the success of Apple's Watch, the company recently filed a patent for a wearable ring that has a touchscreen and voice- and gesture-control capabilities.
The ring is being developed to control other electronic devices.

"A user controls an external electronic device with a finger-ring-mounted touchscreen that includes a computer processor, wireless transceiver, and rechargeable power source," the document revealed.
"The ring is worn on a first finger, receives an input from a second finger, selects one of a plurality of touch events associated with the input, and wirelessly transmits a command associated with the touch event to the external electronic device."
Sketches filed with the patent show small buttons and dials and two versions of a screen: one embedded in the band and the other wrapping around it.

Like the Apple watch, it's possible that the ring would pick up biometric data such as heart rate, perspiration level and stride.
The patent was filed October 1, so it's unclear when such a device would see the light of day.
