We noticed a small mountain of cool stuff at CES this week, however this one remains to be on my thoughts a few days later.
It’s a ring you put on whilst enjoying a MIDI keyboard. By wavering your hand or sliding your arms up the keys, you can alternate the vibrato or depth of your notes. It’s an impact possibly very best demonstrated on video:
Note the way in which his hand gestures have an effect on the sound. It strikes a chord in my memory a bit of ROLI’s Seaboard, however with a same old MIDI keyboard.
Built via a small staff out of France referred to as Enhancia, the ring has 9 built-in sensors that pick out up your gestures and ship them again to a hub plugged into your keyboard. The prototype that they had on show was once stressed, however the Enhancia staff says it will have to be totally wi-fi by the point it ships.
The Enhancia staff says they be expecting to turn up on Kickstarter via March… alas, they haven’t discovered the pricing simply but.
