Enterprise IT solutions are Ryan Snell’s stock and trade, where he serves as the vice president of sales for early stage companies and is based out of Chicago. Ryan Snell aids business customers across the globe in securing the enterprise. Ryan Snell also maintains a personal interest in wearable technologies, such as the Halo.

The Halo is a device consisting of a large hoop that illuminates the face with 180 LEDs. Their color is determined by a synced app that chooses hues based on one’s mood, emotions, and even the weather. The gadget currently relies on straps around the shoulders to hold it in front of the face.

The inventor of the Halo acknowledges its similarity to selfies. Just as selfies enable users to present a certain impression to the cyber world, Halo lets users select the image they wish to present to the real world.

The Halo has been evaluated in situations such as Halloween trick or treating and improvisational theater, and it won an award in Japan for its aesthetic values. Later versions of the device could help waiters present an inviting image to diners and could replace make-up with light patterns that accentuate desirable facial features.
