Is This the Worst Tech Product Ever Made? Snazzy Labs Says Yes

Many people are now crowd funding inventions and products on Kickstarter.

That’s exactly what Japan’s Logbar company did, receiving over $880,000 to get its product, a gesture ring that’s supposed to do nearly everything but clean your windows, into production.

However, not only is the ring far to big to fit almost anyone’s finger, it is terribly designed, truly ugly, and to top it off, doesn’t work most of the time. The software for the ring is even worse, according to this video, being completely hopeless.

At $269, the Logbar gesture ring is a colossal white elephant if there ever was one.

In this video, Quinn from Snazzy Labs does a review of the Logbar gesture ring, or is it an obituary, and refers to the ring as “comically unusable.”

Not only is the ring huge (like gargantuan huge), it only works 5-10 percent of the time, which the company admits is pretty average.

It just goes to show that not all great tech ideas translate into workable products. Or maybe it proves that P.T. Barnum really was right: There’s a sucker born every minute.

 

Now here’s a video showing what Logbar promised the ring is supposed to do. All I can say is there appears to be a major disconnect somewhere here.

So if you were planning to spend nearly $270 of your hard-earned cash, you probably want to seriously rethink doing this.

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
