Tokyo technology start-ups offer devices and gadgets

The Chinaman is not the issue here, dude.

Imagine struggling to catch a waiter's eye to pay your restaurant bill. How about using your finger to draw a currency symbol in the air and write out a sum to transfer, then heading home, safe in the knowledge you've paid for your meal. This futuristic-sounding technique is the premise of Japanese start-up Logbar, which has manufactured the "Ring".

They're not out?  But I know someone who uses them and have seen others.  Or is it just that I live in the Vally of Google?

They're in beta, not available for general purchase. But given the companies that Google has recently added to their portfolio, don't worry, Skynet should go live any day now.
