“Elliptic Labs delivers touchless gesturing in a natural way all around the screen of a smart phone, tablet or laptop at 180 degrees, using the movements you use in daily life. Now, with our software SDK, we are giving smartphone manufacturers a way to easily and cost effectively include consumer-friendly touchless gesturing in their devices,” said Laila Danielsen, CEO, Elliptic Labs. “Elliptic Labs transforms touchless gesturing into a whole new platform with a more natural, human style of interaction. It enhances the way you interact with your favorite applications, such as browsing through pictures, social media and games like Fruit Ninja or Subway Surfer; it uses little power, and works in low light or in the dark. With our high resolution, you will have an accurate, consistent touchless gesturing experience anywhere. We expect our ultrasonic touchless gesturing to be available in devices in 2014.”

How Elliptic Labs’ ultrasonic touchless gesturing works

Elliptic Labs’ technology differs from any other touchless gesturing technology in the market because it uses sound waves to detect movements, not cameras or infra-red. With ultrasound, 3D gestures can be made all around a device providing a clear view of the screen, without a user’s hand covering the screen display or having to work hard to find the exact point to hover over. It is the only solution in the market that can deliver 3D touchless gesturing at 180 degrees all around the screen of a smartphone, tablet or laptop.

The Elliptic Labs Smartphone SDK is available today from sales@ellipticlabs.com
