GestureTek’s Optical Tracker Powers New Gesture Control Phone

Sep 14 2009


Sunnyvale, CALIFORNIA, September 14, 2009 – GestureTek, world leader in gesture control interfaces for interactive displays and devices and the 2008 GSMA Mobile Innovation Global Award winner, announces that its patented EyeMobile optical tracking software will be used in Sony Ericsson’s new Yari mobile phone.

EyeMobile is available on over 100 million mobile devices, enabling motion-control game play on mobile phones. Many titles have already added advanced gesture recognition.

“EyeMobile is easy-to-implement, providing touch-free gesture control functionality without the cost of hardware-based touch screen systems” says Francis MacDougall, GestureTek’s Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer.

Requiring a small processor footprint, EyeMobile is easily added onto existing handsets and applications. An upgraded java-based mobile sensor API lets developers create motion control games/applications for camera-enabled handsets.

Using the mobile device’s camera, EyeMobile measures the movement of the phone, or the user, from one camera frame to the next, allowing for a ‘joystick’, ‘force of motion’, ‘menu selection’ or ‘point to control’ style of interaction. Users can do anything on their mobile device without touching buttons or the screen - menu selection, scrolling, panning, zooming, shuffling playlists and turning pages. Other applications that can be made gestural include web browsing, image view, map navigation and text messaging.'

Handsets embedded with EyeMobile include the DoCoMo 904i, 905i, 906i and 706i series, with models from Sharp, NEC, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Sony Ericsson, and the F305 handset. EyeMobile is also accessible for all post-2006 camera phones supporting the Brew, Symbian and Windows Mobile platforms.

“Mobile game/application developers, equipment manufacturers and carriers are all using EyeMobile. Similar solutions are moving to laptops, consoles, PCs and set top boxes,” says Ralph Linsalata, GestureTek CEO. “Clearly, gesture-based mobile user interfaces are becoming ubiquitous.”
