RiNGminder™ is the low-tech, no batteries required, always on-hand solution for making hard to guess passwords, for all your online web accounts and personal electronic devices. Not only functional, they're stylish-looking fashion accessories for your fingers! They are shiny and make you look like a super-spy. I twirl mine a lot during meetings or while waiting in line for groceries :)
The RiNGminder™ was inspired by a few of my loved ones and friends, whose email accounts were hacked not once, but twice, in the space of a few months. The problem was everyone I knew used both simple and predictable passwords, and used the same ones (or minor variations thereof) for every web account.
I thought to my self, there has to be a better way to make secure passwords that anyone can use.
I'm a computer guy, and I know how hard it is to manage all the passwords in one's daily life. So I thunk and I thunk until my thinker was sore: how can people make better, more secure passwords, and how can they possibly remember all those secure passwords for all their different devices and website accounts? Then I realized the solution: not to remember passwords at all.
The RiNGminder™ is the simple, no-batteries-required, always on-hand (literally!) solution to making hard to guess -- but easy to recall -- passwords, for all your accounts. Unlike smartphone, PC-based or (heaven forbid) cloud-hosted password wallets, wearing these means you always have access to your passwords just by remembering one simple rule. 'Dial in' your password using your own private rule, and you'll never have to remember a complicated password again.
Each RiNGminder™ pair is semi-unique(§), so even if someone knows what two rings you have, they won't know your secret rule. You gain two-factor security: something you have, and something you know.
If none of your fingers can fit a mens' size 9, you can still use them -- put them on a necklace, or on a ring together on your keychain... or if you fancy a full-blown keychain, check out the p@ss™ also sold here :).
NOTE: These are mens' size 9 rings.
(§): Currently there are 5 different lots of rings, each order gets 2 random out of the lots. The more made, the larger the selection will be, and the more unique each pair will be... so tell your friends to buy more so I can make more unique lots :)

I'm an embedded software developer (and no-talent bum musician) who dabbles in hardware from time to time. When not twiddling with MIDI- and audio-related microcontroller projects, I write music and think thoughts, musing about privacy, crypto, online security, space, deep time and other woo-woo.
