though we are self-proclaimed geeks, we are undecided if gesturing in the air is the future of control over our gadgets. we have seen and tested the Samsung gesture-enabled TV and to be completely honest, our arms and hands get tired after a while and hence the big question mark we have. however, if you are undaunted and think it is indeed the future, then Nod Gesture Control Ring is just the right kind of gizmo for you. the product name pretty much says it all. like the Fin we saw earlier, it translates gestures into commands, letting you control everything from your smart mobile devices, connected home appliances and devices like Nest Thermostat, computers and more. Nod takes a step further in gesture control by offering micro-gestures including swipe, rotate, multi-finger and 3D gestures to promote natural interaction and expanding the ring’s applications to even more devices.
speaking of more applications, the Nod also wants to have your gaming needs covered. it is also a nifty game controller, boasting 32K dpi precision and supports the use of multiple Nods. it communicates with other connected devices via Bluetooth LE and supports gestural glide keyboard for text input, remote camera shutter trigger for selfie and more. crafted from jewelry-grade stainless steel, the ring is packed with dual processors, advanced flexible circuity, a tiny battery pack and a 30-foot range antenna, and it is waterproof to 5ATM (169 feet or 50 meters) and is IP68 rated, sealing it against dirt and dust too. the Nod Gesture Control Ring is not a science friction; it is a reality and in fact, you can pre-order one now for $149 with delivery expected to commence sometime in Fall 2014. the future is, well… almost here. keep going for a few more look and a product intro clip.
