LONDON – Motion sensing and gesture recognition company Movea SA has announced its Air Mouse application for the iPhone4 is available for download from the App Store at a price of $1.99. The Air Mouse application enables iPhone4 users to turn their phone into a motion-operated remote control for home media and presentation uses.
The application uses the iPhone4's in-built gyroscope and Wi-Fi connectivity of up to 100-feet, so that hand movements can drive human-machine interfaces for presentations, gaming and consumer electronics.
The iPhone4 download application is accompanied by MotionTools software available for Mac of PC. This gives users the ability to set gestures and sensitivity so they can customize, activate and control desktop applications. MotionTools covers web browsers, media players, and presentations and includes:
Dynamic display scroll, pan, and zoom, pen drawing and highlightin, cut, paste and keystroke shortcuts, media player and volume controls.
"We are excited to enable iPhone4 users to transform their phones into a powerful, motion-sensing peripheral to create poetry in motion for more effective communications and more immersive entertainment experiences," said Bryan Hoadley, executive vice president of worldwide sales and general manager of Movea's U.S. subsidiary.
