iRing is a new motion controller that brings motion detection to your music apps and more. iRing essentially allows for air gestures by having the device rest in your hand and having the front camera on the front device detect the movements.

Now control your music apps and effects without touching your device with the iRing touchless controller for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The new iRing uses hand gestures to control parameters of effects and other items in your music apps, allowing you to create stunning and dramatic music in an incredibly fun way by simply moving your hands in front of your device.

iRing uses patented advanced image-recognition, motion control and precise geometric positioning technology to give you control of assignable parameters within your apps. It uses the front-facing camera on your device to determine the exact position of the wearable rings, and recognizes and tracks the movement of the linear or triangular patterned iRing “rings” allowing you to control up to six parameters at a time.

Making music and creating killer real time effects for nonstop dance music and grooves is now easy and as simple as moving your hands… something you probably already do. So get the groove going and take control with your hands and iRing.

Ring is a simple double sided ring that fits comfortably between your fingers. On one side is an engraved linear pattern of three dots, on the other is an engraved triangular pattern of dots. iRing uses the front-facing camera on your device and advanced volumetric positioning algorithms to recognize and determine the exact physical location of the ring in relation to the device camera. This precise reading of the physical location of the ring is converted into MIDI control messages that are easily read by your music apps over time, thus allowing you to move your hands to control certain parameters within your apps. So in essence, iRing and the iRing control app track your movements and convert them into useful info your apps use to change things.

iRing hopes to get the item out sometime this quarter. They have also launched an SDK and free licensing program to help developers who want to use this technology in their own applications.

I want an iBrassRing so I can punch myself in the face repeatedly whilst protecting my fragile knuckles and controlling my music simultaneously. Technology... what will you think of next?

How about an iEaring to do the same, think is the way to think.

Hey Nat, my comedy may not be groundbreaking but don't bring me down with your sinking ship of a sense of humor.

Well don't joke around flattering your comedy up like you're such a stand up act.
