My New Bling: A Presentation Remote RING!

Never lose your presentation remote again while presenting with this presentation remote ring! It is compatible will all kinds of devices and programs. Come learn all about it!


Let me tell ya, I have owned my fair share of presentation remotes in my lifetime. One day I discovered I could use my phone as a remote and used that for quite awhile. I really did love using my phone and even wrote the blog post: How to Use Your Phone as a Presentation Remote.

But there was just one problem with both the regular presentation remotes and using my phone...
I would set them down (yes, even while presenting!) and forget where I left them! Just recently I discovered is guy...

It is a presentation remote RING that I WEAR and can't set down! I shared this gif on both my Facebook and Instagram pages and received a ton of questions so I thought I would compile everything in this blog post.

It's Affordable!

I stumbled upon THIS ring remote on Amazon. There are lots of different kinds but I opted for the DinoFire. I most likely decided on this one since it has a built in laser pointer😂. Below is my affiliate link, just click the image:

When I purchased this remote and at the time of writing this post it was $15.99. Within an hour of sharing it on my Instastories, Lesa Johnson (@MrsJohnsonZPS) discovered that it was on lightning deal for $11.99...YAHOO! Unfortunately that deal has ended but maybe it will happen again one day soon.

Compatibility

This remote works with a wide range of devices and programs (see image below). I have used it with both Google Slides, PowerPoint and Nearpod on my Mac laptop and Chromebook...worked beautifully!

Little Tip☝

Please don't laugh at me. For some reason I can't for the life of me remember which arrow advances forward and which one moves backward. Therefore, I added a small sticker next to the forward advancing button.

How it Works

First, charge the ring using the USB cable that comes with your purchase (charging time is about 1 hour). The listing claims that it will work for 7 days (I have yet to test this...). Plug the small USB chip into your computer and switch the ring to ON . As soon as I launched my presentation I was controlling everything from my ring. It really was super easy.

If you are like me and have a Mac that does not have USB ports, then you will need THIS thunderbolt adapter:

Someone asked me if it works with SmartNotebook files or Promethean flipcharts. Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to try it with either. However, @mac4teacher on Instagram shared that she ordered a ring remote and it works with her SMART Notebook files!

  1. I don't think it will work with Smart Notebook. The other remotes will not, so I'm guessing this will not, either. I wish it did!!

  2. What is the range on this? I walk around my classroom when I teach, and I notice that my current clicker doesn't work in some areas of my classroom because I'm too far from the computer. :(
