In this competitive landscape, a new AI voice assistant has emerged: the WIZPR Ring, claimed by its company to be the world’s first smart wearable ring AI voice assistant.

VTouch, the company behind this innovation, announced the WIZPR Ring's AI voice assistance feature at CES 2024, where it received the Innovation Award.

This ring boasts advanced AI capabilities that allow users to discreetly whisper commands.

The device is designed to filter out background noise and respond specifically to close-range speech.

It represents a significant advancement in AI-powered wearable technology, aiming to surpass the limitations of traditional graphical user interfaces like PCs and smartphones.

The ring activates whisper commands when brought close to the lips, instantly turning on and allowing immediate voice input without wake words.

It also unlocks quickly when near the mouth and terminates recognition when moved away. 

The device can connect via Bluetooth for efficient conversion of spoken words to text.

The WIZPR Ring is priced around Rs 16,559 in India. Additionally, it integrates with AI tools such as ChatGPT and Gemini.
