Wearable Devices Launches Unity Plugin Enabling Partners to Create Touchless Interaction Functionali

The Bidirectional Unity Plugin provides touchless interaction and control for gaming companies and enterprises developing on Unity supported platforms YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, July 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wearable Devices Ltd. (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW)(“Wearable Devices” or the “Company”), a technology growth company specializing in AI-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced the completion of the development of its new bidirectional plugin for Unity, a game engine supporting desktop, mobile, console, virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) platforms, establishing a live communication channel between the Unity game engine and the Mudra Inspire neural input wristband.

The innovative plugin integrates touchless interaction and control into Unity supported platforms, expanding software development opportunities and enabling commercial gaming companies and enterprises to create increasingly customized experiences for their users.

Through integration with the Company’s Mudra Inspire neural input wristband, new creative and immersive experiences that redefine the boundaries of user interaction can be introduced into desktop, mobile, console and VR platforms.

The newly released plugin represents a significant milestone in Wearable Devices’ commitment to providing powerful tools to unlock the potential in touchless interaction experiences for Human-Computer Interactions and Extended Reality experiences through wearables. The plugin supports iOS and Android operating systems.

Mudra product customers and partners and Unity users will benefit from the following features:

  1. Versatile integration capabilities: With the plugin, integrating touchless interaction and control functionalities is now instant and effortless.

  2. Various gesture type schemes: The plugin grants access to a wide range of functions, including discrete, continuous, and Air-Touch gesture types.

  3. Familiar gestures using relaxed spatial body postures: The use of subtle finger movements for point, click, and drag and drop commands are used for tap to select, pinch to scroll, swipe, slide to unlock, and navigate to any area of interest.

  4. Real-time bidirectional communication: The plugin establishes a live communication channel between Unity and the Mudra Inspire neural wristband, facilitating the transmission of precise gesture data in real-time for seamless interaction and synchronization.

“It is well known that the gaming industry was, still is, and probably will be at the bleeding edge frontier of technology, and when considering the widest reach for our technology into that market, one must consider Unity, which is the #1 leader,” commented Mr. Offir Remez, Executive Vice President of Business Development at Wearable Devices Ltd.

“With that in mind, we are delighted to offer the new Mudra Unity plugin to potential B2B business partners, and provide them with a turn- key solution for integrating touchless spatial interactions into their products and services using the most popular development platform.”
