Crunchfish in collaboration with US-based Vuzix to enable gesture control in AR smart glasses
Today AREA member Crunchfish issued a press release about their collaboration with US-based Vuzix to enable gesture control in AR smart glasses.
Nasdaq First North-listed Crunchfish and Vuzix Corporation enter into collaboration to pre-integrate Crunchfish’s software for gesture control in Vuzix’s smart glasses and thereby make the software available for customers and partners.
Vuzix is a leading supplier of smart glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets. Crunchfish’s gesture control in combination with Vuzix’s glasses creates opportunities for efficient and user-friendly interaction, where the user becomes less dependent on touchscreens and buttons.
For industrial use, gesture control can for instance be used to browse through instructions, manage phone calls, check video streaming, and zoom in/out drawings and documents. Nasdaq-listed Vuzix focuses on design, manufacturing and sales of smart glasses and is represented in USA, Great Britain and Japan. Since 2015, Intel is one of the shareholders, who together with Vuzix’s management owns nearly 40 percent of the company.
“As a leading supplier of AR smart glasses for both the consumer and enterprise markets, it is vital for us to secure suppliers with tools that can be easily used by our partners and solution developers on our platform. Crunchfish is an important partner that provides new and effective ways to interact with our devices.” says Paul Travers, CEO of Vuzix. “The market for AR glasses grows and we are very pleased to work with an influential player like Vuzix.
Their market focus is in line with Crunchfish’s and they see an increasing demand for gesture control from customers and partners, which provides a foundation for a successful cooperation, “says Joakim Nydemark, CEO of Crunchfish.
