Snazzy Labs has reviewed the LogBar Ring, the result of a highly publicised $1 Million Kickstarter campaign, and concluded that it is, quite simply “the worst product ever made”.

The ring was featured all over the web, TV and print, being included in Time Magazine and on almost every tech site you can think of. It promised the user that it would be the ultimate wearable, allowing them to control pretty much any device with in-air hand gestures – like a swipe of the finger to change channel on your TV for instance.

Well Snazzy Labs found that most of this was pretty much nonsense, and what is included with the device mostly doesn’t work. They concluded that the gestures only work about 5-10% of the time and they’re largely pointless because you have to have the app open on your iOS or Android device for them to work. A quick look at their Kickstarter pages reveal comments like:

“So who’s in for a group lawsuit? This thing is a piece of crap and they won’t even respond to requests for refunds.”

Just watch the review and you’ll know why you need to stay well away from this product.

    I think Kickstarter is already an easy way to make money by either selling useless stuff, or just taking advantage of people’s stupidity and the need for everyday consumerism.

  2. Alistair Hardy says:

    Crowd funding has so much to offer but it risks being marred by people who abuse it for a quick money grab.

    I never knew this thing even existed until now.
