This image shows a prototype for a product called Talon. It's a game controller in the form of a ring, currently planned by Titanium Falcon.

The Bluetooth device is designed to connect with game consoles, mobile phones or VR rigs and interpret the player's hand movements via a "9-axis motion control sensor," according to the company. It comes with two action buttons.

Titanium Falcon is aiming to raise $300,000 crowdfunding via an Indiegogo campaign later this month, with plans to price Talon at around $100.

"We believe our touch-less and motion controlled smart ring will change the way users play games forever," said Titanium Falcon CEO Guo Juan. "Talon will enable gamers to play games instantly at any place and time, free hand, while on the go. Users can play mobile games or control applications even when they are doing other things such as running, cooking, taking the bus and so on."
