Tablets and Windows-based Portable Computers
eyeSight's software-based technology uses the device's standard built-in
camera to track the user's hand gestures and convert them into commands,
offering a touch free experience
HERZLIYA, Israel, Feb. 2, 2011– eyeSight Mobile Technologies, a developer
of Touch Free Interfaces for consumer electronics, launched a software-
based gesture recognition technology for portable computer devices.
The technology allows users to control applications, programs and tools on
devices such as Android tablets and Windows-based notebooks and netbooks
by using simple hand gestures. Moreover, eyeSight's solution for Windows
enables seamless integration to windows applications.
Last year, eyeSight introduced the Natural User Interface for Android mobile
devices, and is now releasing its hand gesture interface solution for computer-
based Android and Windows platforms.
eyeSight's Hand Gesture Recognition Technology utilizes the existing
standard built in 2D camera, and does not require any hardware changes or
an expensive 3D camera.
"Users can remotely control their music and video player, browse through
eBooks, manage presentations, play games, control PC apps and carry out
many other tasks without touching the keyboard or touch screen," said Gideon
Shmuel, eyeSight's CEO. "It is ideal for functions that do not require hands-on
management and offers a new and improved user experience."
The company's groundbreaking Touch Free user interface uses advanced
real-time image processing and machine vision algorithms. By using
eyeSight's user interface, manufacturers of portable devices with different
types of operating systems (OS), such as Microsoft Windows 7 and Android,
can offer their customers an entirely new user experience. Users can remotely
control applications on a wide variety of devices, including tablets, notebooks,
netbooks, all-in-one PCs, portable computers, mobile phones, and more.
The Touch Free technology is a pure software solution, highly optimized
for mobile platforms, offering low CPU and memory requirements. It is
independent of the underlying processor and camera hardware, and produces
high quality gesture recognitions using standard VGA cameras which are built
into the devices.
eyeSight Mobile Technologies is a leader in touch free Interfaces for
consumer electronics. Its technology allows users to control mobile and
portable devices with simple hand gestures by using the built-in camera,
advanced real-time image processing and machine vision algorithms.
