Control musical effects using predefined hand movements. 15/01/18
Receiving an innovation award for "Wearable Technologies" at CES 2018, The MIDI ring developed by Enhancia features nine integrated sensors and a real-time gesture recognition algorithm, Which when wirelessly connected to the included hub allows the ring to be connected to a computer or directly to a keyboard allowing the musician to add extra expression to the notes like vibrato, Through predefined hand movements.
"The signal recorded by the sensors is sent to the hub through a proprietary wireless protocol optimized for low latency, The overall system is a patented technology"
As well as the video above, here's fancy one with a wireless version of the Ring.
The first generation of the ring will be launched through a Kickstarter campaign in March 2018, With a goal of delivering the product by the end of the year.
