The company, which unveiled its gesture recognition technology at a conference this week, is calling MoveEye both unique and precise.
MoveEye, which uses a special pair of glasses and a media box to run the software, allows for “efficient hand gesture interaction” with TVs or large screen computers. The glasses have a built-in stereoscopic pair of cameras aimed at the screen, sensors to identify your eye movements and Wi-Fi to talk to the media box.
MoveEye offers “non-relative” computing; meaning you can use your hands to interact with objects exactly where you see them on screen, without the need for a cursor, the company said in a press release.
“I know it’s been said before, but with what we’ve accomplished over the last few years, we can fully expect Minority Report like interaction by the time this product hits shelves in 2014,” said Axel Chevaillier, Cofounder at Tarsier.
The first edition of MoveEye will be two-dimensional. Tarsier will later add 3D capability.
According to a report by Macworld, Tarsier is planning to have the 2D system on the market in November 2014 with a $300 price tag. The 3D system would come out in 2015. (SITE PRO NEWS)
