GestureTek Demonstrates Gesture-Control Software with Face & Hand Tracking for Android® & Symbian® at Mobile World Congress

Feb 15 2010


Gesture-control also enabled for Nucleus® (MTK)

Barcelona, SPAIN, February 15, 2010 - GestureTek® demonstrates its new gesture-recognition software at Barcelona's 2010 Mobile World Congress, Booth 2A108-H. The software lets Android and Symbian developers integrate motion and object-tracking into gesture-control mobile games and applications. Windows Mobile developers can already access the technology.

GestureTek's new Momo software development kit defines interfaces for two trackers. The Motion tracker recognizes motion. The Mosaic tracker follows faces, hands and other objects in the camera's field-of-view.

"Momo gives developers more options for gesture-responsive mobile applications, including games that respond to hand and head movements," says Yoshi Kumagai, GestureTek's Senior Vice President for Mobile. 

GestureTek updated, award-winning Eyemo gesture-control software is also now available on the Nucleus (MTK) platform. Eyemo is now twice as fast as before, enabling developers to target an even larger portion of the feature-phone market that uses slower processors.

Eyemo uses the camera to sense device motion, providing "joystick", "force of motion" and "menu selection" interaction. Users shake, rock or roll the phone instead of pressing buttons, to play games, answer calls, navigate maps, turn pages or browse the web. Momo controls games with hand/body movements (device movement not required).

Eyemo and Momo are delivered over-the-air or embedded directly into camera-enabled devices with no special hardware or design updates required. It's more cost-effective and easier-to-implement and more dynamic than accelerometer solutions.

GestureTek's gesture-control has wide applications in consumer electronics, with developers bringing immersive, gesture-based interactivity to PCs, laptops and toys.

"Greater access to GestureTek's software is significant for mobile and consumer electronics developers," says Vincent John Vincent, GestureTek's President. "They can now create cross-platform gesture-control applications that leverage both hardware-based and software-based gesture-control solutions, depending on the target device."

GestureTek's software is available on tens-of-millions of mobile devices worldwide, including Japan's NTT DoCoMo, and used in over 200 mobile applications. Platforms supported include Windows Mobile, Brew, Java, Symbian, Nucleus, Android and Linux. Enabled handsets include models from Sony Ericsson, Nokia, NEC, HTC, Motorola, Samsung and LG.
