Ugh, This Engagement Ring Box Camera

By Mario Aguilar on at

Spring is in the air, and you're possibly feeling joyously spontaneous, looking over at your winter cuddle buddy that things got unexpectedly heavy with. Maybe it's time to spend the rest of my life with this person! If you're going to get down on one knee and propose marriage to the love of your life, you now have the option of using Ring Cam to capture the moment.

For $100 (that's £67, but if you want it to delivered to the UK, that's an inexplicable $135 on top, adding another £90 – maybe that prohibitive cost is for the best?) an enterprising company will rent you a Ring Cam for three weeks. When you go down to pop the question, push a little button on the top of the ring box, open it up, and a camera inside capture the reaction of your One and Only from the ring's point-of-view. The box has a built-in microphone that capture your partner's surprised shrieks and/or shifty find-a-way-to-say-no face.

I suppose the Ring Cam was inevitable. People have been hiring photographers/recruiting their friends to document wedding proposals for a long time. Camera technology is shrinking to the point where making a ring cam affordable is feasible. And thanks to Facebook, we all want to share every last moment of joy with everyone, and expect a document of everything that has ever happened – all for a 'Like' or two.

Why can't we just have love without accessories?
