Smart Key Ring / personal belonging

Smart Key Ring
Smart Key Ring

Key rings are widespread in contemporary society due to their convenience and low cost. Nevertheless, trouble comes up when we pass the ring through the hole of the key. It is difficult to split the two layers of the ring by our nail. Our fingers may even get hurt in some cases.
This reformative smart key ring provides an intelligent solution to the problem. With a well-designed curve, the ring allows a key inserted into the gap directly without using our nail. As a result, the ring is placed on the position where it can easily go through the hole of the key.
