Words From Nod Inc. CEO & Founder Anush Elangovan
“We took a step back and looked at how we’ve progressed from plug panels and dip switches to the mouse in the PC era, and then touch in the mobile era, and we were like ‘what’s next?’,” says Nod Labs founder and CEO Anush Elangovan. “Speech has always been one part of it, but speech doesn’t work in a crowded room for example, so the next obvious one is gestures.”
Nod Ring is Currently On Back Order Only
For consumers, Nod ring is currently out of stock, but you can sign up and be notified when back order is in stock. At this time, Nod ring is only available for developers, you can fill a form on this page.
