TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--

eyeSight 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" high-definition IPS display, gesture control, up to Intel (News - Alert)® Core™ i7 processor and a ten-point multi-touch screen (Click here for an embeddable video.) Running up to Windows 8 Pro, the IdeaPad Yoga 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 controlled set-top-box.

eyeSight welcomes enquiries from potential customers to discuss possible applications of its gesture technology in its products.
