About

What we do

Hand Motion 2.0 is changing the way people think about iPhone & iPad apps. With our app, anyone can control their devices with touch-less hand gestures. Think of it as Microsoft Kinect® built directly into your iPhone and iPad! Welcome to The Next Generation iOS app!

It uses HAND GESTURES detected via the built-in webcam in your device to control your iPhone and iPad.
- Take Photos with waves of your hand!
- Works via your webcam -- no additional hardware necessary
- Works best from 1-4 feet distance from webcam

Coming Soon:
- Play/Pause your music & videos using simple hand gestures
- Go to Next Song or rewind to Previous Song, Mute, Volume Gestures!
- We are constantly adding new gestures!  
- We are working to enable popular games such as: Angry Birds, Minecraft, Candy Crush Saga, Clash of Clans, Fruit Ninja, Plants vs. Zombies and Cut the Rope!
- We are also working to enable popular music apps such as:
YouTube, Spotify, Grooveshark, iTunes, Rdio, Quicktime, VLC, Keynote, Netflix, and Pandora!

How it works

Hand Motion 2.0 is touch-free gesture recognition for your iPhone and iPad. It uses the front-facing camera of your device. And can accurately detect and track human hand movements from a close range and up to 4ft.
 
The software is very good at ignoring ambiguous gestures, or unrelated movements in front of the camera.
 
Hand Motion 2.0 was designed to be fast and low-power - meaning it won't drain your battery!
 
The app enables full control over your device and can be used in various environments:
 
For example: 
-Control videos, music and photos from various distances. A simple hand gesture allows the user to take a photo, play a song or watch a video.
-It also provides an easy way to browse the Internet without touching the screen, using hand motion to navigate the screen.
-Keep your screen clean! No more touching the screen with hands covered in grease!
-It can also be used in a Medical and laboratory environment were hands need to be sterile.
 
The possibilities are limitless!! We are very excited about it and we know you will be too!

Why Kickstarter

While our company is already fully funded, we will use our crowd funding campaign to select our early adopters. This will ensure the right level of end-user commitment at a time when the product isn't totally viable yet giving early adopters a clear ownership of the product's development process. We will try to make the process as professional, collaborative, and enjoyable as possible!

Project goal

Our goal is to sign-up hundreds of highly-motivated early adopters who will help us take our software from Beta to Public Release over a period of a few months. Our Beta software is currently ready for project backers. Afterwards, we will work with backers to fix the remaining minor bugs and implement new features that will take our software from Beta to Public Release. We will release our software to the general public when a majority of backers responding to surveys organized every few weeks decide that our software is ready.

Use of funds

Fix bugs, add a few missing features, improve end-user documentation.

Demo

*Take photos. Hands-free. No touching required.
Move your hand slowly in a downward motion about 1 inch from your device's screen to take a photo.

Risks and challenges

After years of research and development, we have built a prototype of our application for the iPhone and iPad. We are happy to announce that we have overcome the most critical technical challenges brought by our app. The software is currently in Beta - and the work that remains is just related to minor bug fixes. We are 100% confident that we will fix the minor bugs within the next 2 months! We are primarily using Kickstarter to select our early adopters, and we want them to be ecstatic about using our product and working with us.
