'Titanium Falcon' is producing a smart ring that allows users to control video games simply by moving their fingers. While other companies have produced tech-infused jewelry, this ring is the first example of a motion control device aimed specifically at a gaming audience.

The device is called the 'Talon' and it acts as a form of wearable WiFi for your ring finger. The smart ring is equipped with a nine-axis motion sensor that allows you to connect to your game console via Bluetooth. The tiny motion controller gives you the power to perform different commands simply by waving your arms or wiggling your fingers. The ring also contains two action buttons on the side that enable you to perform additional functions such as in-games jumps or firing a weapon.

The high-tech ring demonstrates how the gaming industry is beginning to incorporate wearable technology into its new systems.
