TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Mobile Technologies announced today that the company's intuitive and
natural gesture-control capabilities are included in Lenovo's (News - Alert) exciting
new range of Ideapad
Ultrabooks. The first device to incorporate the technology is the
unique IdeaPad Yoga, the world's first multi-mode Ultrabook, which
features a 360-degree hinge that allows users to effortlessly flip their
device from a laptop to a tablet, a free-standing 'tent' or even 'stand'
configuration for total versatility.
The Yoga, is the first multi-mode Ultrabook of its kind, and provides a
high level of flexibility between work and play. The Yoga is primed with
rich audio-visual features including Dolby® Home Theatre, 13.3"

provids the ideal platform for touch and gesture control.
eyeSight's (News - Alert) gesture recognition technology can be used to interact with
several of the Yoga's core functions, including its media player, photo
gallery, Powerpoint and PDF reader, with simple hand movements used to
browse documents or skip tracks from a distance of up to 70cm. There's
no complicated set up, and the experience is so simple, intuitive and
seamless that it feels totally natural to the user.
"We anticipate a future where users will expect to be able to interact
with their computer simply using whatever input method is most
convenient for them. The Yoga is a bold step towards this future," said
Gideon Shmuel, CEO, eyeSight. "It provides all of the traditional inputs
that are optimum for certain activities, such as a touch pad and
keyboard, together with a unique screen that can be angled to any
situation. And our technology brings an extra dimension of control,
letting you browse through notes, movies or pictures without even
touching the screen. This is the kind of versatility people want."
eyeSight's wider technology portfolio offers a broad range of features
including the ability to recognise simple, low-effort, hand-gestures,
highly-accurate hand and fingertip tracking, as well as facial
recognition. eyeSight's technology works well even in low lighting
conditions and in areas with busy or moving backgrounds. The technology
can be easily integrated across a range of operating systems,
including Microsoft's (News - Alert) new Windows 8 interface.
eyeSight's technology is compatible with a variety of digital devices
and is currently available on the market in TVs, mobile phones and
ultrabooks, as well as the recently launched world's first gesture

applications of its gesture technology in its products.
