Doublepoint has unveiled technology for detecting gestures to control XR devices.

 Doublepoint Technologies, an innovator in gesture detection technology, has recently announced the released of its free app “Wow Mouse” on the Google Play Store, along with a new version release of its gesture detection algorithm, which is compatible with WearOS smartwatches.

Doubplepoint’s technology allows developers to easily integrate touch-based micro-gestures into augmented or virtual reality (AR/VR) applications, as well as IoT devices and Smartwatch offerings. The company’s new app lets consumers supercharge their Android watches with cutting-edge gesture-touch technology and instant Bluetooth connectivity to headsets, phones, tablets, computers, and more.

“We are not only revolutionizing the industry, but we are also completely transforming the guidelines for human-computer interaction through our touch-based gesture tracking. This advancement is a significant leap forward, providing an intuitive and impressive user experience not only for smartwatches but also for other technologies,” stated Ohto Pentikäinen, CEO of Doublepoint. “Our algorithm has been meticulously crafted to seamlessly integrate with current products, enabling original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to innovate user experiences without starting from scratch.”

Doublepoint announced that individuals who own a WearOS smartwatch can enhance its capabilities by utilizing their technology for gesture recognition. The company presented the newest version of its main software at CES 2024 recently and introduced its support for ‘Human Interface Device’ (HID). This development in gesture control introduces a new feature called stationary pinch and hold, which Doublepoint believes is a significant advancement in controlling wrist-based devices. It enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and developers to provide consumers with a more engaging experience by combining gestures and touch.

Doublepoint’s Wow Mouse can connect to AR and VR devices and act as a gesture input controller.

With support for HID, the app can be recognized by any device as a “mouse-like” device, allowing for easy integration with various Bluetooth-enabled devices. This expands the potential for effortless interaction across a diverse range of electronic devices.

Doublepoint has announced the availability of preorders for the Doublepoint Evaluation Kit, alongside the software release. This kit is specifically designed to cater to companies interested in incorporating Doublepoint’s gesture detection algorithm. It comprises a Doublepoint wristband, along with advanced algorithms and evaluation tools.

Key features of the Doublepoint Kit:

  • Advanced Gesture Detection: The algorithm, which involves using pinch and hold, is capable of handling arm movements effectively. It has various important applications such as XR headset input, accessibility, IoT, controlling smartwatches with one hand, and more.
  • Licensable Software: The software in the Doublepoint Kit is instantly licensable for integration into existing smartwatches, fitness trackers and other smart wristbands;
  • Reference Design: The Doublepoint Kit serves as a reference design, enabling the creation of new device categories, including input wristbands.
