These smart rings will make sure your partner doesn’t watch your favorite show without you
No more spoiling Game of Thrones.
A successful relationship takes maturity, perseverance, and a willingness to put another’s needs over your own. There’s a give and take in love where sometimes your needs have to go on the backburner to make your partner happy. Needs like watching until your partner is around to watch Game of Thrones. Of course not every couple has built that level of commitment but, thanks to the UK ice cream company Cornetto, there’s finally a way to ensure you only binge watch together. You just have to say “I do” to a ring.
The Cornetto commitment rings use NFC technology to block your loved one from watching your favorite shows without you. Users sign up for a pair of rings on the company’s website. When they arrive, couples use the company’s app to select which shows they want to watch together. Yes, this means you’ll have to open the app and put your rings together to unlock your favorite show. But isn’t it worth it to make sure your spouse doesn’t ruin House of Cards?
At the moment, Cornetto hasn’t announced which streaming services will be supporting the app, just that they are “partnering with some of the top streaming services” around. The launch ad shows Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon, so expect some heavy hitters. No matter what apps end up being available it’s a lovely idea. It’s nice to know there’s finally a commitment ring that can stop cheating, even if it’s just skipping ahead to the next episode.
