Imagine being able to answer a call, or silence an incoming call, turn the pages of an e-book,, control a presentation, or better yet ...map specific keyboard shortcuts or mouse actions to the simple gestures of the hand with a wave,flick-of-the -wrist, finger pointing?!?, and of course,...thumbs up ! :)
eyeSight CEO Gideon Shmuel, explains in one of a series of company profiles showcasing how startups are innovating with NVIDIA GPU technology,at the Emerging Companies Summit, held during NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference earlier this year.
Surely touch computing is appealing to the mainstream,Gideon Shmuel, and eyeSight’s chief executive officer, is confident that touch-free gesture control won’t be far behind. Certainly remotes can get lost, and batteries replaced, screens can get smudged, but ideally a person would not have to touch a device at all.
eyeSight lets people operate devices with small, intuitive gestures.
eyeSight has deeply integrated its software with the Android, iOS, Linux and Windows operating systems, including a recently announced offering for Windows 8. OEMs can include eyeSight in their products without having to interact with the operating system code at all.
Certainly the Isralei start up company has been collaborating with a variety of component makers -from chipsets to touchscreens to camera modules – across the mobile, PC, tablet and set-top box markets, among others.
Gary Rainville,writes in an NVIDIA blog post “GPU STARTUP STORY: EYESIGHT WAVES OFF TOUCH TECHNOLOGY”
“With the NVIDIA Tegra 3 mobile processor, eyeSight’s software can quickly process the pixels involved in tracking objects and enable a wider variety of gestures. Whether you use a finger to select menu items on a TV screen, multiple fingers on a tablet or a hand to skip to the next song on a notebook, GPUs can help ensure top performance and low power consumption.”
Make it So!
