ManoMotion is a computer vision-based software company that provides intuitive human-machine interaction using your bare hands, without additional sensors or hardware. The company is based in Stockholm, Sweden.
ManoMotion’s patented technology originates from 6 years of research at KTH – the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The CTO and co-founder of ManoMotion, Dr. Shahrouz Yousefi won the Chester Carlson award in 2015 for distinguished research based on the framework behind ManoMotion’s technology.
ManoMotion’s unique interaction technology has been productized in both a standard product for smartphones as well as custom OEM solutions for the industrial and extended reality (XR) markets.
Altendorf, a world leading manufacturer of sliding table saws has integrated ManoMotion’s technology in their Hand Guard System. The saw machine identifies when hands or fingers are coming too close to the saw and immediately stops the machine, thus preventing hand injuries.
Another application area for ManoMotion’s technology is in AR/VR Headsets where handtracking is necessary in order to optimize the use of the headsets. In this area ManoMotion’s technology is integrated in ThirdEye X2 MR Glasses and will soon be integrated into another major Mixed Reality Headset.
Additionally, ManoMotion provides a Software Toolkit for application developers to implement touch-less AR-interaction in Smartphones for use in games, marketing, education or to create Virutal Try on for online shopping.
