A MIDI Controlled ring that allows musicians to provide music effects.

From CES 2018 (Consumer Electronics Show) held in Las Vegas there is always new and innovative technology on show.  One of these that caught my eye this week is called Enhancia.  It’s a ring you wear on your finger, that is connected to a hub that integrates with an electronic instrument, like an electronic keyboard.  The musician can move their hand with the ring on it to affect the musical notes they’re playing. See the video for a sample where you can see the keyboard player moves the ring to cause vibrato in the notes.  Pretty amazing stuff – the company announced they will launch a Kickstarter campaign this Spring with an estimated price of $250-$400 US.
