Ever Present Awareness

As we near the technological stage when our money will no longer be represented as physical entities but rather but electronic bits of information. How might we perceive the existence of our financial transactions? How would we know if someone steals our money?

This concept proposes a ring, which directly links the wearer to there personal finances through a pain feedback system (a higher speed sense than tactile signals). 

Wearing the ring will create a constant link to your online finances and an almost instant awareness of any financial transactions through a bite like experience, produced by tiny spikes inside the ring.
