eyeSight has just launched a software-based gesture recognition technology that intends to see action on portable computer devices, and it does make us extremely interested to see how eyeSight is going to improve upon the numerous touch gestures used on touchscreen devices that are already on the market these days via a new method.
Apparently, this technology will enable users to control applications, programs and tools on a host of devices including (but not limited to) Android tablets and Windows-based notebooks and netbooks – all through the use of simple hand gestures. Apart from that,eyeSight’s solution for Windows will ensure seamless integration to Windows applications. Hmmm, gestures with the Android platform and with Windows? That is certainly something worth looking into.
This new move by eyeSight does seem to be a step up from last year’s efforts, where eyeSight introduced the Natural User Interface for Android mobile devices. With its new hand gesture interface solution for computer-based Android and Windows platforms, expect a whole new world of possibility to open up for you.
eyeSight’s Hand Gesture Recognition Technology will rely on the current standard built in 2D camera, and good news for those who want to adopt it – you will need not fork out additional dough to purchase new hardware or an expensive 3D camera.
According to Gideon Shmuel, eyeSight’s CEO, “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 touchscreen. It is ideal for functions that do not require hands-on management and offers a new and improved user experience.”
It will boast advanced real-time image processing and machine vision algorithms to keep everything running fine and dandy, and various manufacturers of portable devices that use different operating systems will be able to let their users have a whole new user experience. Imagine remotely controlling applications on a wide variety of devices, such as tablets, notebooks, netbooks, All-In-One PCs, portable computers, and mobile phones among others.
