EyeSight has this week taken the wraps off it new gesture based control system for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system, which has been in development for sometime, and will provide users with new ways to control the latest Windows8 OS when it arrives later this year.
The advanced gesture control user interface created by eyeSight enables Windows 8 users to control windows, applications, media, and the newly created Metro user interface within Windows, with simply hand gestures and the use of a low-end 2D web camera.
“The Windows 8 user-interface has been designed beautifully for touch,” commented Gideon Shmuel, CEO, eyeSight Mobile Technologies, “and OEMs are now hungry for a simple-to-integrate, mass market answer to touch-free control. And as hardware-based solutions incur significant costs, time and real-estate issues, software is clearly the best way to achieve this.”
At Computex last month eyeSight demonstrated their new gesture control interface running on a wide variety of device from smartphone to computers. For more information jump over to the eyeSight website for details.
