Who Are We?

RHL Vision Technologies Pvt. Ltd. is a group of passionate individuals incubated at Startup Village, Cochin and a corporate office as Fin Robotics,Inc at Palo Alto,CA, who dream of a world where technology runs in the palm of your hand. Having a passion to change the way humans interact with technology, long hours of brainstorming led RHL Vision Technologies to come up with the Fin, A small wearable ring by which you can control your entire digital world.

We were working on Touchless Technology devices for over more than 8 months from the initial stage of the company. We had developed a couple of products called Tryara, a virtual tool where you can try out jewelry without even touching them, Ferne Player- a Blackberry store app by which you can control the music player of your smartphone touch-less. After these products we always felt some factor missing in the technology itself.and it was the interaction mode. We stood in customer shoes and found its most suitable when you can actually feel it very close to you. That's how Fin was evolved. Fin removes all the stress and strain required while interacting with touchless devices.Your palm is your control.

What Is FIN?

Fin is a tiny hardware product that you can wear on your thumb as a ring and it will make your whole palm as a gesture interface. Fin can uniquely recognize each segments of the fingers and can convert your palm into a numeric keypad. Fin is a Bluetooth enabled device that we can connect to three different digital gadgets like Smartphones, Smart TVs, Automobiles, and Home automation devices providing multiple device compatibility. Fin reads different gestures from your palm and its corresponding values control connected devices. 

 It uses smart Low Energy Technology such as Bluetooth for Communication with connected devices. 


Unique Features Of FIN 

Fin can help 285+ million visually impaired to interact with Technology 

Here is a video feedback from some blind people on how Fin can make their life better and to have that hope and light in the life.

Where Are We Now? 

Where Is The Money Going?

Fin is a rare kind of product that evolved from a technology that aims at natural human machine interaction. Fin achieves one of its goal when it goes global. To make Fin global we need your support. It not only help us find funds for manufacturing but also spreads a word to the world about our innovation to make our planet a better place to live in.

To list out what will happen to the Funds that are raised is below:

Fin is going live on Indiegogo because it’s a great way to reach out to creative developers, wearable tech pioneers, enthusiastic early adopters, and premium platforms.

We’ve come up with hundreds of ideas for applications to integrate with Fin, but we know that we haven’t even scratched the surface of what is possible.

We want you,the developer, to propel the wearable tech movement forward by creating entire new categories of applications with Fin and complementary technologies.

We need you,wearable tech pioneers, to collaborate with us to provide consumers with an ever-increasing web of tightly integrated wearable technology products that enhance productivity, learning, and social interaction.

We want you,the early tech adopter, to use your influence as trend-setters to show the world the benefits of a smarter, interactive and more connected world.

Use Cases

Thumb is accessible to anywhere in the palm and its more natural too. So wearing a Fin will make your palm as a touch interface that enables the people to interact with Smartphones [Dial Numbers, Attending calls, SMS, Social media, Taking Quick Notes etc.] especially for visually challenged people since they sense the world through touch.


Fin can control your smart TV, to change the channels, control sounds by mere natural finger swipes.

Fin can control your car from being your cars key to controlling your phone while driving, navigate your maps, receive calls and read messages, change music, and other car utilities just by finger swipe without even taking your hands off the steering wheel  there by not distracting yourself from driving.

A big problem in all the wearable devices is the input of Instructions. In the much-Hyped Google glass, a voice instruction and a touch pad on devices is provided, but both the input methods are cumbersome in odd situations. Integration with FIN will be ideal for these wearable, as FIN can control the device with much ease and accuracy.

For better entertainment experience FIN can serve as controllers for gaming industry.

Fin helps you access your Mobile utilities while jogging.
