Arcus ring motion tracking device has unprecedented levels of accuracy

arcusWearable technology has certainly progressed by a fair amount, especially in the past few years, and it does not look as though innovation is just going to call it a day and quit right there and then. Having said that, the folks over at Arcus Motion intends to test the waters when it comes to motion tracking, by rolling out a crowdfunding campaign over on Kickstarter for the Arcus ring, where this will not be a piece of jewelry that will flatter the wearer as well as those who gaze upon it as though it were a piece of bling. Instead, the Arcus ring will be a showcase on just how much progress has been made where motion tracking technology is concerned.

The Arcus ring happens to be a unique piece of wearable tech that functions as a motion tracking device, delivering greater levels of accuracy compared to the existing arm-banded or bracelet motion detectors. Those who wear it will be able to obtain valuable information as well as insights regarding their movements even as they indulge in their favorite sports, but the Arcus ring does more than that. It will even be able to provide a platform for hands-free use as well as let you control tablets, media players or even Smart TVs with nothing more than simple finger gestures.

The Arcus ring is capable of tracking the motion while recognizing finger gestures of users, and all of this information will be sent to the corresponding smartphone or tablet. Not only that, it will also boast of unique features such as multi-finger support and wireless charging.

The Arcus ring is so sensitive, it is touted to be able to detect even the slightest finger movements, making it perfect to track and analyze sports movements, ranging from a golf swing to swimming strokes, all the while letting one control Bluetooth enabled devices as it functions seamlessly with a variety of unique mobile applications. We do hope to see the Arcus ring raise enough funds to be realized in due time.
