Apple's wearable device could be coming in multiple versions, at least one costing $400

Apple's long-rumored wearable — the iWatch or whatever they end up calling it — is expected to be announced during the September 9th event alongside the long-rumored iPhone 6. Pricing has thus far remained a mystery but we've speculated that Apple could ultimately want to field a range of devices at a range of price points, similar to what they've done with the iPod lineup in the past. That would let a range of customers have access to HealthKit, HomeKit, the new payment system, and more. Now one of those price-points is rumored to be around $400.

Fund This: Ring, the touchless gesture controller to everything

An impressive Kickstarter project out of Japan was launched recently called Ring. No, it doesn't involve a haunted videotape. This smart ring detects movement with enough fidelity to recognize gestures drawn in the air by an index finger and transmit them to your iPhone. Using the iOS app, users can program those gestures to execute commands, such as translating into text, launching apps, or approving transactions. A small sensor on the inside has to be touched in order to initiate a command, plus there's a vibration motor and LEDs in there to let you know about incoming notifications from your iPhone. There's going to be a Ring store which highlights apps that make use of Ring's API, and they've already tested it with a few popular accessories, like Philips Hue, AR Drone, Google Glass, and WeMo.
