Innovative Technology of the Week: Bluetooth Ring that Turns Your Hand Into a Wireless Controller by RHL Vision
With technology running rampant, consumers are seeking easier ways to control their devices. That is exactly what RHL Vision has solved with their Bluetooth ring, Fin.
Fin allows your hand to become a wireless controller for your smartphone, TV, and other devices.
“Fin is worn on your thumb and has a tiny optical sensor that detects movements, allowing you to send commands to connected devices with a few swipes and taps of your fingers. As TechCrunch’s Greg Kumparak described when he wrote about the device’s prototype in January, you can turn down your phone’s volume by swiping your thumb down your index finger or skip the current track by swiping your thumb across the palm of your opposite hand.”
What makes Fin even more special is its ability to help the visually impaired. “RHL Vision says that Fin can potentially help more than 285 million visually impaired people interact more smoothly with technology. If it reaches its stretch goal, the company will make its ring available for $59 to blind people.”
This crowdfunded product is making headway for technology and helping others while doing it. What do you think will come up next?
