While there are other MIDI rings on the market, Enhancia hopes to differentiate itself by focusing on simple hand gestures. The company says it worked with over 50 musicians to choose which movements were most naturally performed while playing a keyboard. Originally, it supported three hand movements — a slight hand wobble, a slow tilt to the side, and a tilt forward. Now, Neova has two new gestures built in: a rocking hand wave and a roll.
