A New World at Your Fingertips – eyeSight’s Fingertip Tracking Solution
Israel and The US, 7th February 2013 – Israeli company eyeSight Technologies today announces the world’s first commercial gesture technology to allow users to control digital devices with a fingertip, even from across a room. With eyeSight’s camera-based ‘fingertip tracking’ users can, for the first time, move a cursor simply by pointing their finger directly at the screen, for the ultimate intuitive user experience.
The success of any gesture system will be dictated by how ‘natural’ it feels,” commented Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight. “Just as Apple made control via touchscreens feel completely natural a few years ago, we’re hoping to do the same thing with gesture: Our fingertip tracking makes gesture feel so intuitive that eventually people will use it without even thinking about it. Now we’re hoping to make this capability available in consumer devices produced by our customers.”
