||Computer input devices such as mice and keyboards have remained largely unchanged since the
dawn of the personal computer. The Ring GINA platform is capable of sensing and interpreting a
userís hand and finger movements to emulate and enhance the functions of these standard input
devices. A wearable platform frees the user from the need to know hand position relative to a
keyboard or mouse, and grants the ability to perform gestures in open space or on any surface.
Here, a method is presented that utilizes these rings as a text input system. In moving forward,
efforts are being focused on creating a library of gestures to perform additional tasks, as well
as further miniaturizing the mote and ring.
