A ring? Maybe something to do with the ability to recognize more gestures?

The fin is promised to be available at about 100 dollars each...

The fin is also crowdfunded:

I think the technology of the gadget in the article and the fin are similar.

My guess is you will need one for each hand. Position sensing could give you some nice options for scrolling, selecting, and other commands...

and then one for each foot for Dance Dance Revolution. Can't wait till we get some flash mob DDR dance-offs in time square. Should be their first commercial during the next superbowl..
