eyeSight Ready to Release eyeCan Windows 8 Gesture Control Software
eyeSight has just taken the wraps off their new gesture based control system for Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system: eyeCan. This is a software solution and so a lot cheaper than buying extra kit.
eyeCan has been in development for quite a while but will provide users with new ways to control the latest Windows 8 OS when it arrives later this year.
The advanced gesture control user interface created by eyeSight enables Windows 8 users to control applications and media within the newly created Metro user interface with simple hand gestures.
This system has been designed to work cameras of low and varying quality so there’s no need to go out and buy new equipment as your current webcam will be ideal.
“The Windows 8 user-interface has been designed beautifully for touch,” states 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.”
eyeSight demonstrated their new gesture control interface running on a wide variety of devices from smartphones to computers.
