ControlAir for Mac Brings Touch-Free Control to Media Apps
Use touch-free finger gestures to control iTunes, Spotify, Netflix, QuickTime and other music and video applications.
February 2, 2015 – ControlAir is launching to give Mac users touch-free control over their media and entertainment apps. With ControlAir, users can lean back and control music and video applications using air gestures, without touching their keyboard or mouse. The free app is available now for download in the Mac App Store.
ControlAir is simple to use, just raise your index finger in front of the Mac’s camera. Move your finger left or right to navigate between the play/pause, skip, rewind and volume controls. To select a function, air-click by lowering and raising your finger and mute by placing a finger to your lips in a “shush” motion.
“ControlAir offers a simple way to control your music and video applications,” said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight. “Media apps are often running in the background and ControlAir keeps the control of those apps always accessible by simply raising a finger.”
ControlAir works with MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMac devices OS X 10.9 or later. The touch-free control is available up to 5 feet away from the device and works with iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Netflix, QuickTime, VLC and Vox, with support for more media apps coming soon.
“With the help of our sensing technology, the way we control and consume media is evolving,” said Shmuel. “We created ControlAir with a fun and futuristic user interface to make your Mac’s media apps smarter and easier to use. ControlAir is about freedom at your fingertip.”
ControlAir is developed by eyesight, the creators of singlecue and a leading provider of machine vision and gesture recognition solutions for digital devices. The company provides touch-free interfaces to OEMs such as Lenovo, Philips and Toshiba and has worked with a handful of developers to make touch-free applications.
eyeSight will be showcasing its latest touch-free technologies including ControlAir at Mobile World Congress from March 2 to 5 in Barcelona. Download ControlAir for free from the Mac App Store today.
