Wearable Devices to Enable New User Experience for Mobile Games

The Company is exploring its neural input technology for the benefit of gamers by realizing interactions beyond the touchscreen

YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, May 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wearable Devices Ltd. (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW) (“Wearable Devices” or the “Company”), a technology growth company developing AI-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced the successful completion of testing for a gesture-based control system to provide mobile gamers with a touchless gaming experience across mobile gaming devices. The proof of concept was conducted using the Mudra Band, the Company’s flagship consumer product.

Wearable Devices' touchless sensing technology recognizes subtle finger, hand gestures, and gradations of fingertip pressure with remarkable accuracy. Through the Bluetooth pairing of the Mudra Band to any mobile device, users will be able to experience mobile gaming without the need for physical interaction. These intuitive and natural control capabilities enhance the gaming experience and create new possibilities for gameplay.

"With mobile games accounting for approximately 50% of global game revenues in 2022, this market represents a significant opportunity for our technology, and we’re excited to deliver a gesture-based user experience that was previously available only for stationary gaming consoles,” commented Mr. Offir Remez, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Wearable Devices Ltd. “We believe a major part of the gaming experience is lost due to the limitations of the touchscreen and adding gesture-based interactions to mobile games will bring more excitement, fun and joy to gameplay.”

The Company’s Mudra Band for Apple Watch already supports touchless operation and control of the iPhone and additional Apple ecosystem devices.
