Ringed Boxes Edit
The ringed boxes are first discovered by the Student in the cutscene "Something Weird," which takes place in the Box Storage Area, part 6. Ringed boxes always have two rings attached, on opposite sides. The rings allow the box to be pushed forwards and backwards. The Student once mentions that ringed boxes can be pushed up and down too, but it takes a lot more force.
Detached Rings Edit
Rings can also be detached from boxes and used to move other things around. This is first shown by the Gentleman in the cutscene "Revision," when he uses a detached ring to move tiles around to make his Memory Evaluation levels. Detached rings can also be seen in the cutscene "Leave It Here". They are both seen to be able to carry the rings around easily, implying that the rings are not very heavy. It is also shown that rings can be easily detach from objects, as shown in both cutscenes.
Other Usages Edit
- The Angel's halo is a ring, and the ring is what allows him to "fly," not his wings. He mentioned that he discovered the rings seven and a half months before the Student.
- The Student hypothesizes that the Skater uses rings in his skates to help him balance.
- The hover boat introduced in the cutscene "Obvious" seems to have two rings on the inside of both sides. These rings might be what make it float.
