This looks good and could replace my glovepie/xbox camera setup
Couldn't find the resolution, I'm assuming it's better than 30fps
The wii controller was pretty smooth using bluetooth, I'm hoping these will be as fast or faster as using 4 at once would be handy(!)
Nice interface
The ability to get the raw data is the icing

I was thinking one on each hand and and each foot would be great on stage. For now, I'm going to attach one to my cello bow.

I got just the ring. I should have bought the ring + expression box. You can't buy the expression box separately as far as I can tell and it only adds $29 to the price but then again, it would be cool to have two rings + one expression box.

It took pretty much no time to it figure out. Tested it on Reaktor Blocks. I have to say it's smooth and useful over knobs in that you can control three parameters with one hand and do it easily. The software is very easy to understand and the bluetooth is flawless.

I'm giving it 5 stars.

Works great with iPad/iOS for modulation.
Never made time to try it with Scope.

I put it on the head of my MIDI guitar.
