The Fin Ring is the latest piece of wearable tech in a long line of designs that is making waves on the Internet. Of course, with its classic surfboard-like aesthetic, the Fin Ring will surely ride that wave to success. It has a sleek and stylish aesthetic that will appeal to people on more than a technical level.

Designed by team based in Cochin, India, the Fin Ring essentially turns hands into one big Bluetooth 4.0 controller. Working in tangent with gestures, it is capable of sending commands to up to three separate connected devices. This is achieved through the precise detection of its location across the wearer's palm and fingers. Currently, the Fin Ring can handle up to five different gestures per device, but the designers are creating a final product that will be capable of much more.
