iRing Takes Music Making Out of Computers and Into Your Hands

If composing music using your hands is hard, you can now try composing just by waving your hands.
iRing is a motion controller that users can use hand movements to create effects in music.

Created by IK Multimedia, the iRing is a motion-controlled wearable ring set that a user can use to either control music apps, without ever touching the computer.
The iRing is double-sided, with one side having three linear dots and the other, three dots but in a triangular pattern.
Different movements and gestures control the iRing like making bass drop in or out — all of which use the camera on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to recognize and understand the position of the iRing and issue a command on a MIDI program.
The iRing works with two different softwares as apps: the iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller. The first is meant for an casual user, whereas the latter is for those who want to use it to create audio effects and as a MIDI controller.
This isn’t the first type of wearable technology to try and create musical effects seamlessly.Mi.Mu is another company that does the same with gloves — except those would cost about $4,000 if they went to market.
For those interested, an iRing set of two is $25, with the apps available for free.
