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...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars.
