Engineers have developed a new wearable, gesture-based gadget that turns your palm into a touch interface.

Fin enables users to control up to three devices - such as smartphones, car radios and smart TVs using only swipes and taps.

Fin has five pre-programmed gestures; and it can control the volume on a television, and even lets users text or dial a number without touching their phone, the report said.

The creators of Fin said they hope the natural interaction can help people who are visually impaired.

The device will be sold in five different colors at 120 dollars and is expected to be released in September 2014.
