HONG KONG, Dec 21, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - eyeSight Technologies, a leader in advanced embedded computer vision and deep learning, has been awarded two new patents: one offers a groundbreaking solution for the power consumption issue AR/VR headsets and wearable devices suffer from, and the other, referred to as the Direct Pointing Interaction technology, addresses solutions centered around direct pointing detection for interaction with a digital device and displays.
Rather than performing indirect gestures to prompt the device to perform an intended action, such as lifting a finger upward to get a mouse cursor on the display and moving the hand in order to move the cursor until it reaches the desired icon, the new direct pointing technology can immediately detect the exact location a user is pointing at, making the interaction natural, direct and immediate.
