Apple Working on Smart Rings to Act as Controller for VR Headset

Recently, Apple submitted a new patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) titled “self-mixing interferometry-based gesture input system including a wearable or handheld device”. The patent describes it as a ring-like design that might be used to control the VR headset. The ring could be used alone or in pairs and you will be able to control your Apple devices and VR headset with hand gestures. There is no official statement given by the company so you should take this news with a heavy pinch of salt.
