The Wave Ring is a new device that's offering an ever deeper element of autonomy to musicians, as it enables one to create sound by simply waving their hand in the air.
This wearable MIDI controller fits onto one's finger like a ring and can effectively send sound and shape effects with movement. Different movements can control the volume, or dramatics of an audio effect, creating a more subtle or auto tune-inspired noise. Perfect for nearly any musician, this device can be connected to a variety of instruments, like guitars, keyboards and even computers, making for a unique DJ set.
The Wave Ring retails for about $200, and is currently being funded through Indiegogo.
