IK Multimedia > have created the first motion-tracking controller for iOS music apps
iRing uses the front-facing camera to track movements
iRing allows music makers to control sound effects and other parameters on their favourite apps in real time using hand positions, without the need to touch your screen.

A wearable controller, iRing is tracked by the front-facing camera on your device and uses highly optimised recognition algorithms built into the app to track your movements to provide an affordable motion-tracking solution.

The ring itself is lightweight and double sided, designed to be comfortable enough to wear whilst playing other musical instruments. A linear dot pattern on one said and triangular dots on the other, the camera on your device picks up the pattern and converts it into music commands for dedicated apps.

The iRing includes two new apps, the iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller, suitable for everyone from music lovers to expert musicians.
