1 is a perspective view for explaining a smart ring according to an embodiment of the present invention.

As shown, the smart ring 100 according to the present invention includes a body 10, a smart chip 20 and the coupling member 30.

The main body 10 has a ring shape that can be fitted to a finger, and the ring-shaped main body 10 has a width sufficient to place the smart chip 20 on its outer circumferential surface. In particular, the body 10 is made of an elastic material so as to fit on the fingers of all thicknesses regardless of the thickness of the finger.

For example, in the embodiment of the present invention, the main body 10 may be made of a rubber material having its elasticity as a whole.

On the other hand, as shown in Figure 2, only a portion of the body 10 may be made of an elastic material. That is, the main body 10 is a portion in which the smart chip 20 is coupled is made of a non-elastic material, for example, a metal material, and a portion disposed below the finger when it is inserted into the finger is made of an elastic material such as rubber. Can be done. In this case, the mutual coupling of the metallic material portion 10a and the elastic material portion 10b, although not specifically described, may be achieved by various coupling methods known as well as a coupling method using the properties of the material itself.

In addition, the main body 10 in the present invention, in addition to having a ring shape of the minimum width that can be placed smart chip 20, in order to give a glamorous gem or artificial gems, such as diamond, sapphire and ruby on the outer peripheral surface The back may be machined into a specific shape and mounted, and it is also possible to have various designs by partially different widths rather than having a constant width.

Subsequently, as the smart chip 20 is detachably coupled to the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10 having a ring shape, the smart chip 20 may be configured as an RFID chip like the conventional one. Payment information or user authentication information may be stored and used as a credit card (debit, prepaid, postpaid) or identification card. Also, it is designed to allow long distance communication and transmit specific information to the corresponding communication equipment.

In addition, the smart chip 20, as shown, is provided to have a rectangular shape when viewed in plan, alternatively, it may be provided to have a polygonal or circular shape other than a square. In addition, as the smart chip 20 is disposed on the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10 having a ring shape, the smart chip 20 may be bent to have a slight curvature along the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10.

The coupling member 30 is installed on the outer circumferential surface of the ring-shaped main body 10 to allow the smart chip 20 to be coupled, and the coupling member 30 in the present embodiment is connected to the smart chip 20. It may be a pair of fitting grooves for interference fitting of opposite opposing edge portions. That is, the pair of fitting grooves are spaced apart at appropriate intervals on the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10 in consideration of the size of the smart chip 20, and the pair of fitting grooves facing the spaced apart from the smart chip 20 The smart chip 20 may be coupled to the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10 by inserting both edge portions. This may be understood that the smart chip 20 is a little elastic, as well as the body 10 itself is made of an elastic material.

On the other hand, the coupling member 30 may be made of the same elastic material as the main body 10, of course, may be made of a metal material without elasticity.

Since the smart ring 100 according to the present invention is configured to combine the smart chip 20 in the ring-shaped body 10, there is no need to carry a separate card equipped with a smart chip, very easy to use Can be. In addition, due to the characteristics of the ring, the decorative function and the convenience of possession, as well as the user does not pull out the ring very low risk of loss.

In particular, the smart ring 100 according to the present invention is designed in a variety of forms of the body 10 having a ring shape, or a jewelry or artificial jewelry such as diamond, sapphire and ruby in the body 10 in a specific shape By adding additional processing and mounting, you can pursue more outgoing fashion and your own unique and individual design in line with the ever-changing trends and trends.

In addition, in the case of a general ring, as the main body fitted to the user's finger is formed as a closed loop of the ring shape, the inner ring cannot be changed only because the inner diameter cannot be changed. Wear, or selectively purchase a ring having an inner diameter corresponding to the thickness of the finger among the already produced rings.

However, since the smart ring 100 according to the present invention can be fitted to the fingers of all thicknesses regardless of finger thickness because all or part of the body 10 is made of an elastic material, according to the thickness of the user's finger separately order There is no need to make or change the inside diameter.

On the other hand, in the above-described embodiment of the present invention, a pair of fitting grooves for the interference fit type is installed as the coupling member for coupling the smart chip to the outer peripheral surface of the main body, it can be provided in addition to the coupling member of various forms.

Specifically, FIGS. 3 to 5 are perspective views for explaining coupling members in a smart ring according to other embodiments of the present invention, which will be briefly described as follows.

Referring to FIG. 3, the coupling member 30 of this embodiment may be formed as a slide groove for coupling the smart chip 20 in a sliding manner.

The coupling member 30 in the form of a slide groove, for example, is hinged to both ends of the first groove of the "C" shape and the entrance first groove in which the smart chip 20 is slid. It may include a second groove that blocks the inlet side by the rotation after the sliding of the chip 20. In this case, it can be understood that the slide groove including the first groove and the second groove is provided to have a certain degree of curvature, as in the ring-shaped body.

Referring to FIG. 4, the coupling member 30 of this embodiment may be installed in the form of a rubber cover covering four edges of the smart chip 20. In this case, the smart chip 20 is disposed on the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10, and the edges of the smart chip 20 are covered with a rubber cover to bond the smart chip 20 to the main body 10. This can be done. In this case, the rubber cover may be installed on the outer circumferential surface of the main body 10 in a manner using an adhesive.

Referring to FIG. 5, the coupling member 30 of this embodiment may be a screw for screwing four corner adjacent portions of the quadrangular smart chip 20 to the main body 10, respectively. In this case, it may be understood that the main body 10 is also provided with a screw groove into which the screw, which is the coupling member 30, is inserted.

In addition, although not shown and described in detail, the smart ring according to the present invention is applicable to the coupling member suitable for the pop-up method, the adhesive method and the pin fixing method in addition to the above-described coupling member.

As described above, the present invention has been illustrated and described with reference to specific embodiments, but the present invention is not limited thereto, and the scope of the following utility model registration claims is provided without departing from the spirit and field of the present invention. It will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made.
