So this is working with any app that use Bluetooth connectivity...
It is a Kickstarter thing but it has already reached its goal so that is good.
Hard to say how much something like this would be used in the end and feel that it could be a great thing or just something that is disappointing or collecting dust. Guess that live anything that make electronic music performance more visual is a plus!
Here is some info from the Kickstarter page:

This had a small journey that have been going on for around two years since first being announced on Kickstarter to later being bought up by a toy company doing robotic starwars toys and other things.
So now it is here and have been fascinated by this since seeing it at first.
Basically it is rings that can easily learn to read colours that can be used to trigger sounds on a device through bluetooth.
It seems to work good and hopefully will get some extra monies to buy a pair and try them out.
Was hoping that the price would be lower. My treshold being set to around fifty up to 60... for two of them as one would seem a little bit too limited.
Now they are about 65 monies for one and 100 for two.
They do look like a lot of fun though and would be great for playing live as it can use colours on anything, like clothes or paintings etc.
To see a whole band perform tapping walls would look wonderful!
To have a couple of these for a theatre would seem like a must...
Here is a short list of what can be done:
What is worth is important to mention as well is that it can be used to trigger other software that allows for Bluetooth midi.
It will be fun to see what people will do with this.
Also hope to see them used on Android with some different devices to see how they perform.

Finally I can press play and run to the other side of the room to sing!
No it is a funky thing to be able to interact in different ways with your applications.
Guess that the most obvious use for this is that you can have one controlling Audio Evolution
while a singer for example can concentrate on the performance.
Just realized that you can use this for sneak listening leaving a microphone in one place...
