The Orb transforms from a ring with a simple twist to become a Bluetooth headset capable of hands-free calling. The Orb was born as a collaboration between Hybra Advance Technology Inc. and AbsolutelyNew Inc. A Deluxe edition also features a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Device (FOLED) screen to display caller ID, calendar reminders, and voice-to-text information for communication without taking the ring off the finger. To have the Orb looking like a fashion accessory for your ear, NXT technology has been utilized for bone conduction so you don’t have to stuff anything into your ear canals. Bluetooth is class 2 with a range of 30ft. The base model Orb is scheduled to launch in January 2010 carrying a suggested retail price of USD$129, while the Deluxe edition is due in April 2010 with a price of USD$175. The Limited edition designer models are also due in April 2010 with their price based on the value of the gemstones incorporated into the device.
