The Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter is the latest wearable technology that enables palms to be used as a digital touch interface and numeric keypad. It is different from the other wearable gadgets that are mostly worn on the wrist as smartwatches. It is a gesture-based gadget that is best worn on the thumb. Read on to learn more about this amazing technology!
According to Fin's official Web site Wearfin.com, the Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter makes lives easier by providing 100% screen visibility on smartphones. Now, playing games, reading e-books and surfing the Internet on one's smartphone is much clearer than before. It can also be used as a convenient controller for headmounted displays. Plus, it can be controlled even if your hands are inside your pockets.
What's great about the Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter is that it can be used to control up to three devices including smart TVs, car radios and smartphones. All users have to do is to tap or swipe and it will execute the controls from their chosen devices. They can control the volume of a TV and text or call without having to touch one's smartphone. As long as your devices are Bluetooth-enabled, then you are good to go and you can already use it. It is also waterproof and has a LED indicator as well as built-in sensors.
It has five pre-programmed gestures but users have the option to create custom gestures using an app that comes with the device. It will reportedly be released in September 2014 and will be sold for $120. It will be available in five different colors including red orange, blue, green, black and white.

Aside from the regular people who love technology and innovative products that make life convenient and easier, the Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter is also great for the visually impaired because they can finally interact with amazing technology even if they can't actually see it. As long as it is programmed properly into their devices then they can use it to assist them in their day-to-day lives.
The creation of Fin's revolutionary wearable device was made possible through RHL Vision Technologies, which is a startup company that is behind Fin and was founded by Rohildev Nattukallingal.
Nattukallingal spoke to Mashable about the Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter.
"People in today's world are becoming more busy, but still they are wasting a lot of time interacting with their smart devices," said Nattukallingal in the Mashable report.
"Fin removes this interaction gap by allowing users to quickly interact with those devices," he added in the Mashable report.
According to Nattukallingal, the Fin Wearable Ring Transmitter can last for up to a month on one charge, provided that it's only used for eight hours a day and it's in power-saving mode.
Nattukallingal and his team use the crowdfunding site Indiegogo to raise funds. They have already raised more than $15,000 but they still need to raise $100,000 in flexible funding within the next 21 days. Help them out by clicking HERE to go to Indiegogo.
