On May 11, 2017, 9.00 a.m. PST, TRiiNG ( launched their Kickstarter Campaign for Modulaj, the first in a range of forthcoming fine jewellery embedded with smart technology, and the first biocompatible Titanium wearable featuring lab-grown Sapphire and Spinel gemstones. 

Inspired by Montreal’s mid-century Brutalist architecture, Modulaj smart ring is a notification apparatus for one to be connected and yet detached from the incessant digital noise that envelops us.

With Modulaj, TRiiNG Collective has created the means for users to interface with their Android or iOS smartphone using touch-input and receive context-derived visual/sensory alerts. Modulaj is conceived to return to the user full control over relevance and amount of information received.

Incoming phone calls, SMS and email notifications are filtered using word clouds and most relevant alerts passed through. Modulaj is as much productivity tool as style statement. Tether your smartphone. Rest easy knowing Modulaj delivers the most pertinent bits and bytes to your fingertips.

Modulaj smart ring anticipates the return to brutalist architecture of Montreal’s Société de transport de Montréal and explores the versatility of straight lines and modular efficacy of interlinked segments. Fine jewellery immersed in technology, the ring expresses the stark brutality of sheet metal and softens lines by thoughtful arrangement of accents — of polished and buffed metallic sections capped with translucent lab-grown semi-precious gems chosen as much for their hardness on the Mohs scale as for their colour — Ciel in blue Spinel and Noir in black Spinel, and Glace in white Sapphire.

Formal metal working techniques and precision engineering come to the fore with this art | tec offering.
