The ring does nothing to collect charge, it simply provides a contact point to conduct charge away from your body. As mentioned in the first link, any metal object will serve the same purpose. I can't see the need to incorporate a resistive element. Static discharge through a metal object is all but imperceptible, at least to me.

Where I work they wear "foot grounders" like these. It seems more practical, you're always 'grounded'.

Samizdata, I don't know about the ring doing nothing. It does have that big ol' sexy ZAP on the front of it, that oughta get your ass kicked by the school bully and that's something.

What I'd like to see is a decent explanation of those Q-Ray bracelets.
