Apple’s iRing would join long list of rings in pop culture

Apple is rumored to be working on a ring that would act as a television remote control. A Wall Street analyst who reported the rumor called it the iRing.
Product designer Victor Yanko envisioned the iRing back in 2007 as a way to control your iPod. He created a physical model of the ring for his Yanko Design website.
If it comes to pass, the iRing would join a long list of notable rings in popular culture.
Consider the following powerful rings.

The “One Ring to rule them all” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth fantasy novels.

DC Comics superhero Green Lantern and his power ring.

Cartoon hero Underdog and his ring with a secret compartment holding a super-energy pill.

Rings with magic powers feature prominently on the TV series “The Vampire Diaries.” Some rings allow vampires to walk in the sunlight. Other rings protect humans from death by supernatural beings.

And finally, there’s the pope’s ring.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi kissed the papal ring worn by Pope Benedict XVI as U.S. President George W. Bush looked on during an arrival ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House on April 16, 2008 in Washington, D.C.
