Your wedding day is arguably the most important day of your life, which is why your wedding anniversary is such a big deal. A partner that forgets to celebrate their anniversary is due in for a world of pain, as seen in classic sitcoms. How can technology help? Alaska Jewelry has helped by upgrading the token of marriage: The wedding ring.
This new innovation in marriage tech is called the Remember Ring, and it’s the hottest new invention on the wedding market, literally. Inside the Remember Ring is a micro thermopile covered by a water proof plate engraved with your anniversary date. You will go for the entire year forgetting that your wedding ring is a high tech device, but on the day before your anniversary, you will be alerted to its presence as it heats up to an uncomfortable 120ºF (48ºC).
Remember Ring is programed to heat up for 10 seconds every hour. It’s as if the ring is saying, “Be sure to make restaurant reservations,” or, “Have you ordered flowers yet?” Alaska Jewelry will program the day into the ring when you buy it, and it works by converting the heat from your hand into electricity. Think of the Remember Ring as your last line of defense when your day planner fails; and when it comes to remembering this important day, many of us can use all the help we can get.
The Remember Ring is still in the concept phase. On the Alaska Jewelry website, you can read reviews from people who wore the ring and attribute it to keeping the peace in their relationship. Lord of the Remember Ring Josh Harshmen explains, “Anniversary and birthday, baby. It’s like a hand gun. Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.” You can preorder it from Alaska Jewelry for $760, there is currently no shipping date set.
