Wearable Devices XR Team's Report: The Mudra’s Neural Technology to Power Future XR Devices

The comprehensive review highlights Mudra Band’s precision in fingertip pressure measurement, revolutionizing interaction with Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3

YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wearable Devices Ltd. (the “Company” or “Wearable Devices”) (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW), a technology growth company specializing in artificial intelligence (“AI”)-powered touchless sensing wearables, today published a comprehensive report by its extended reality (“XR”) team. This report reviews the latest developments in the wearable technology market, focusing on XR, and highlights the pioneering role of the Company’s neural input wristbands in advancing smart glasses technology.


The report concludes that the Mudra Band is a revolution in gesture control technology, offering immediate and unparalleled precision and accessibility for smart glasses users while eliminating the dead weight and computational overhead of traditional XR glasses. The precise measurement of fingertip pressure by surface nerve conductance (“SNC”) sensors provides a level of fine-grained control that sets a new standard in wearable technology. This positions the Mudra Band as the cornerstone for future human-computer interactions, significantly elevating the standard for XR input methods.


Key Highlights from the Report:


Gesture Recognition Evolution: The report emphasizes the shift from traditional camera-based gesture detection to the innovative use of neural input wristbands equipped with sensors like Inertial Measurement Units and SNC. These wristbands offer a new, more intuitive way to interact with devices, especially face-worn devices like the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3.


Precision in Fingertip Pressure Measurement: The Mudra Band's SNC sensors excel in capturing the subtle electrical activity of nerves, allowing for precise measurement of fingertip pressure. This capability provides fine-grained control and enhances the accuracy of gesture recognition, making interactions more responsive and intuitive.


Technical Mechanics and Algorithms: The XR team delves into the technical intricacies of these sensors, explaining how human movements, sensed from the crucial touch-point of the wrist, define intentions and in turn classified into digital commands. The report examines the classification algorithms powering wearable neural gesture recognition systems, highlighting the computational benefits that enable natural and intuitive interactions, as opposed to camera based computer vision.


Alternative to Dead Weight and Excessive Compute: Using the capabilities highlighted above, a system comprised of Smart Glasses and Mudra can outperform products such as Apple Vision Pro, with superior performance, lower weight and lower compute constraints.


Benefits for Face-Worn Devices: The report underscores the significant advantages that neural input wristbands provide for devices like the Apple Vision Pro and Meta Quest 3, enhancing user experience and accessibility.


Leeor Langer, Chief Technology Officer of Wearable Devices, commented, "Our XR team’s review shows how Mudra technology outperforms vision based hand gesture recognition, alleviating the need for heavy sensors, significant compute and field of view challenges."


Potential Applications and Future Implications:


  • Enhanced Accessibility: Neural input wristbands have the potential to make technology more accessible to a wider range of users.

  • Intuitive User Experience: By providing a more natural way to interact with devices, these wristbands can significantly improve user satisfaction.

  • Vast Applications: The technology can be applied in various fields, from consumer electronics to specialized industrial applications.


The report highlights that the Mudra Band’s neural controller is available now, offering immediate access to advanced gesture control without waiting for future market releases.
