eyeSight Technologies Collaborates with Sony to Bring Next-Gen Computer Vision to a Consumer Device Near You


HERZLIYA, Israel, March 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eyeSight Technologies, a leader in embedded computer vision and deep learning solutions, today announces its collaboration with Sony Mobile Communications Inc.– a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation and a leading global innovator of audio, video, game, communications, key device, and information technology products for both the consumer and professional markets. By integrating eyeSight’s sensing technology into Sony Mobile’s interactive projector, Xperia™ Touch, users will now be able to experience the most natural form of communication with their devices through both touch and touch-free interactions. 

Xperia Touch is equipped with a revolutionary surface-touch based interaction, but recently received a computer vision-based facelift that now allows its users to experience and communicate with the device via touch-free interaction. Relying on the existing built-in camera of the device, eyeSight was able to enrich the user experience, allowing users to have immediate and direct control from afar with the content projected without the need to touch a surface. 

“We are excited to add eyeSight’s embedded computer vision technology to the Xperia Touch,” said Hiroshi Ito, Deputy Head of Smart Product Bsiness Group at Sony Mobile. “We aim to offer our customers the most intelligent and advanced user experiences, and with the synergy between our touch and voice-based interaction and eyeSight’s touch-free gestures, we’re able to fulfill that promise.” 



eyeSight’s complex technology simplifies the interaction between humans and devices, and the touch-free gesture interaction is just part of the big picture. “Our computer vision AI is more than just a gesture control solution,” said Gideon Shmuel, CEO of eyeSight Technologies. “The technology provides devices with an intelligent-seeing capability that enables it to react to our presence and even create personalized experiences by identifying who we are.” 

eyeSight’s vision for the future is more than just computer vision, as the company believes in combining more than just one interaction method users experience to current devices. By combining the three key methods – touch, vision (gestures & awareness) and voice – both companies will be able to deliver experiences which are as close as human-to-human interaction can get in the human-machine world.


“This exciting, synergistic collaboration with Sony Mobile opens the door to the continued introduction of devices that enrich the consumer experience through simplified, personalized interaction,” says Shmuel. “Sony Mobile is a leader and innovator in user experience, and we look forward to working together to bring this simple yet intelligent synergy.”
