singlecue connects and controls media and smart home devices through fun, simple, touch-free gestures
Tel-Aviv, Israel - October 1, 2015 - eyeSight Technologies, the leader in computer vision and gesture technology, today announces public availability of singlecue, a first of its kind standalone device that lets you control your TV, home entertainment and smart home devices with touch-free gestures, as effortless as a wave of a finger.
How does singlecue work?
singlecue connects wirelessly with other devices in your home. The touch-free control is enabled by a simple CMOS sensor that works with eyeSight's machine vision technology to identify and track a user's finger up to 16 feet away from the device. The technology searches for a shape of a finger and specified finger motions, including a pinch motion to click or a shush gesture of placing a finger on the lips to mute the TV. Once a gesture is detected, singlecue translates the motion into action and lets you control entertainment and smart home devices wirelessly using Infrared, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The user then receives responsive and visual feedback on the singlecue screen, displaying the functions being controlled.
"Leveraging years of experience in gesture recognition technology and after embedding our solutions in millions of well-known manufacture's devices, we're excited to bring singlecue's advanced capabilities to the consumer," said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight Technologies. "We created a whole new way to control your home, which is simple and natural, and we couldn't be more thrilled to bring our vision to market."
