Grenoble startup Enhancia’s connected ring was a hit with international music icon Stevie Wonder, who tried it on at CES Las Vegas. When a musician playing a keyboard or synthesizer wears the ring, it produces additional sound effects according to preconfigured hand movements. “I like it. I love it,” said Wonder. Enhancia’s four founders, all 2017 graduates of Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma, made the trip to CES—where they received a warm welcome—to promote their product in the run-up to a Kickstarter presales campaign scheduled to begin in March. The ring’s nine integrated sensors and motion-recognition algorithm have been patented and the product is slated for release in late 2018.
