Gesture Ring Gives People Hands-Free Control Over Their iPhones [CES 2014]
The iRing lets users perform tasks on their iOS devices without touching them.
The iRing, which was unveiled at CES 2014, is a double-sided ring that functions as a motion controller for music apps on iOS devices.
Created by IK Multimedia, the iRing uses the front-facing camera of an iOS device and advanced motion detection and positioning technology to translate hand gestures into commands to perform specific tasks on the device without having to touch the device at all.
The ring is being marketed towards music DJs, but the company also wants to explore the iRing’s potential in other areas and is encouraging game, health, and fitness software developers to look into using the technology. IK Multimedia invites interested developers to get in touch with them.
The iRing can be pre-ordered at IK Multimedia’s website and at select musical instrument and consumer electronics stores for $25.
