Barcelona, SPAIN, Feb 9, 2009 – GestureTek Mobile, world leader in gesture control interfaces for mobile devices, will ‘wow’ visitors in Booth 2.1C58 at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona from February 16th to 19th in Barcelona, Spain. In addition to exhibiting its technology, GestureTek Mobile will share its progress and innovations since winning the GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Award in 2008.
Key pre-show announcements being made by GestureTek Mobile include:
GestureTek Mobile’s EyeMobile engine uses the existing camera on a mobile device to measure the movement of the phone, or the movement of the user, from one camera frame to the next. This allows for a ‘joystick’, ‘force of motion’, ‘menu selection’ or ‘point to control’ style of interaction. With EyeMobile, people can do anything they would normally do on their mobile device without touching buttons or the screen, including menu selection, scrolling, panning, zooming, shuffling mp3 playlists and turning document pages. EyeMobile can also provide a gesture-based user interface for mobile applications such as web browsing, image view, map navigation and text messaging.
“Because EyeMobile is software-based, it can be easily added onto any existing camera-enabled handset and integrated into existing applications,” says Francis MacDougall, GestureTek’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer. “EyeMobile requires a small memory and processor footprint, can be delivered over the air to existing handsets and is extremely cost-competitive compared to the higher-cost implementation of touchscreen systems.”
According to MacDougall, EyeMobile optical tracking software is ideally suited to the majority of the world’s mobile phones: those without built-in accelerometers. The software can also be easily and rapidly integrated into hardware-based touchscreen systems (such as the iPhone, for example) so that users can access all their applications without ever putting a fingerprint on their screen.
Handsets currently embedded with EyeMobile optical tracking include the DoCoMo 904i, 905i, 906i and 706i series, with models from Sharp, NEC, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Sony Ericsson. Other handsets with access to optical tracking include all post-2006 camera phones supporting the Brew, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms.
“GestureTek Mobile’s motion-controlled user interface and applications are growing in popularity with mobile game and application developers, equipment manufacturers and carriers. Similar solutions are moving to laptops, consoles, PCs and set top boxes. Without a doubt, we have reached a turning point in the move to ubiquitous gesture-based user interfaces for mobile devices,” said Bill Leckonby, CEO of GestureTek Inc.
