Ring Box Equipped With Camera Records Proposal Reactions

You've seen flash mob proposals, underwater proposals and so much more -- but you've definitely never seen a proposal like this.

In an era of putting our lives online, photographing and filming proposals has become quite popular -- and new device makes it even easier to capture that special moment. The twist? Only the person proposing actually knows it's there, so users are able to capture the genuine element of surprise.

The Ring Cam, a camera built into a ring box, records a real up-close-and-personal reaction of that special moment.

Four students at Hope College in Michigan invented the box for a design project at Hope College and launched their company in October.

Although the box costs a pretty penny -- $250 to buy or $100 to rent -- the alternative is to hire a photographer, which could be more expensive. Paparazzi Proposals, for example, charges $850 to capture video of your proposal.

Plus, the Ring Cam offers high-quality video, offers an editing service at an extra cost and is super user-friendly.

"The box acts just like a USB drive; there's this little hidden micro-USB port right on the side, which means that any standard cell phone charger can plug into that. And it plugs right into your computer, it accesses USB, and you can move the file right over," ‚Äčone of the inventors told the Detroit Free Press.

What's next for the budding entrepreneurs? They're hoping to take their product on ABC's "Shark Tank" and get involved with one of its wealthy investors.

"LET'S RE-LIVE THIS FOREVER HONEY!" Isn't that basically what he is saying. I mean don't get me wrong, it's kindda cool, but can't you just have someone around you record it? I think you would get more out of watching the person-recorded video then the box one

She's got a juicy body that I would love and bop bop a lot. Today is a good day! USPS got the message and got off the toilets! They have my packages! Now only if the alcoholic mail lady makes it up the street without passing out or skipping mail boxes, we might be OK. I don't mind if they pull over and master bait a little bit. I just don't like the drugs and alcohol these ones around here do. Bad people with secure lifetime jobs. Gotta hate them! Might as well waste them! Oh that box lady is awesome!
