Want to Wear Your Mouse?

The latest creation from EyeSight Technologies has answered consumers’ dire demands for the stakes to be raised. Not only can users operate from a virtual world with a new technology development, they are now enabled to control their mobile devices with a virtual touch.

Innovative Developments, a technology company that focuses on human and computer interface controls, has created a new product that aligns closely with Eyesight Technologies’ creation: the Mycestro, a 3D wearable mouse.

The wireless mouse can be worn on users’ index fingers and uses a gyroscope to track positioning in 3D space, translating that to the 2D screen through an app or functions like tap-to-click through a built-in accelerometer.

Eyesight Technologies’ virtual touch innovation uses a similar technology, which allows users to engage with their mobile devices without actually touching the screen or using any type of device. Instead, all users have to do is point their finger at the screen while sitting at a maximum of 15 feet away and move their finger in the air to control the cursor and virtually click for tap command.

The wireless mouse can be used across a landscape of areas, increasing safety and efficiency simultaneously. Engineers who use 3D software such as Pro-E can now manipulate their 3D objects through hand motions and can even zoom in and out by moving their arm inward and outward. For those operating a car, this wearable mouse can be used by drivers as a way to keep their eyes on the road while they navigate though menu options.

“The company is focused on the utilization of a specific technology with multiple vertices, multiple applications,” says Innovative Developments CEO David Greenspan. “With advancements and enhancements to what we’re doing, we feel comfortable that we have the opportunity to take this technology into other marketplaces.”

Although these technologies from Eyesight Technologies and Innovative Developments are in its earliest stages, this has set forth a new generation of operating and engaging with our electronic devices. Essentially, without the need for a mouse and just the need for a simple hand gesture, technology has begun to replicate magic and superpower capabilities that we only see on TV.
