Hi,
Does anyone know where I can buy a Java Ring. I know I can buy the iButton for the ring at ibutton's website, but I don't know where I could buy the actual ring.
Cheers,
Ryan

Good question - I don't know if they are made anymore. Back when they first came out I got the key-fob holder because the ring was more expensive.
I just succumbed to temptation and bought the TINI networked java microcontroller experiment kit. Dunno what I'll use it for but it looks cool.

Thanks for the reply.
If you go to iButton.com they have all kinds of neat little gadgets. You can order them free also. I honestly think I ordered about 30 different items
I have a friend that has the one wires wired into his phone lines throughout his house. He is using the temperature buttons which record his temperatures throughout his house and stores the readings in a database. He has also put a front end on it so anyone can see what his temperature currently is, or what it was 2 years ago on a specific date. I figured I would get the kit and play around with it. The whole concept just sounds cool. I also noticed that fossil made a watch with an iButton that had a JVM. I talked to fossil and they had no idea what I was talking about . I know it at least exsisted because I have seen pictures on the internet.
I know, I'm a geek, but I though having a ring or a watch would be pretty cool. Especially since you can program them. I have all the APIs downloaded so I'll be ready once my kit comes in. I wish I would of been there for the JavaOne conference in 98 to see the rings.
If anyone else has anymore information please let me know.
Cheers,
Ryan
