Pingu [158], a ring that detects motion by using accelerometers and gyroscopes, and orientation by using magnetometers. Another technique for recognizing gestures is by tracking hand motion. An object that has a magnetic sensor recognizes a magnet located on any finger. Neya [159] is a tracking bracelet that detects the 1D input of a strong magnetic ring and communicates wirelessly with other devices. Likewise, Abracadabra [160] uses a magnet on the fingertip to control a wristwatch. Hinckley [161] identifies these three characteristics of several input devices.
