GestureTek Mobile Wins Prestigious LAPTOP Magazine Award

Oct 26 2007


Company’s ‘EyeMobile Engine’ Wins ‘Best of CTIA Wireless and Entertainment’ Award at San Francisco Conference

TORONTO, CANADA – OCT 26 2007 -- GestureTek Inc. - the pioneer and world leader in computer vision technology and provider of state-of-the-art gesture-based interactive solutions for nearly twenty years – today announced that the company’s mobile business unit, GestureTek Mobile, has been recognized by LAPTOP magazine.  The company’s EyeMobile Engine was named “Best Entertainment Application” at the 2007 CTIA Awards (International Association for the Wireless Telecommunications Industry), presented on October 23-25 at Moscone Center in San Francisco. 

“As the wireless lifestyle becomes more pervasive in our society, people will always be looking for new ways to work and play wirelessly,” said Vincent John Vincent, President and Co-Founder of GestureTek. “We are proud of this award for our EyeMobile Engine, as it affirms GestureTek’s groundbreaking contribution in this exciting space.”

GestureTek’s EyeMobile Engine takes mobile gaming and navigation to new heights. This software-only solution uses the existing camera on a mobile device to deliver a gesture-based interface to mobile applications. An entertaining and intuitive alternative to conventional button interfaces, EyeMobile allows users to do anything they would normally do with their mobile device, such as play games, answer calls, make menu selections or scroll, pan and zoom in on photos, simply by shaking, rocking or rolling their device. With the EyeMobile Engine, handset manufacturers can offer all the benefits of gesture recognition technology without the expense and real-estate of adding specialized hardware.

The EyeMobile Engine application programming interface (API) also provides application developers with the means to integrate motion control into their applications, much as they do with current analog controls such as keys and buttons.

GestureTek’s 2000+ clients include Fortune 500 companies such as Verizon, CNN, NASA, BMW, Ford, Oracle, Intel, IBM, Federal Express and Panasonic, as well as NTT DoCoMo and Telefonica. Leaders such as Microsoft, Sony and Hasbro have also licensed GestureTek software for their gaming products. More information about GestureTek and the company’s technologies can be found at www.gesturetek.com.
