MUV Interactive announced the launch of Bird™. Bird is an intuitive device worn on the tip of the finger that transforms any surface into a multi-touch interface with 3D interactive capabilities. Bird communicates with the user’s devices, enabling rich interaction with anything from displayed content and smart home appliances to IOT devices and drones. Bird can now be pre-ordered at www.muvinteractive.com.
Bird is the first device to integrate the entire spectrum of interactive methods – including touch, remote touch, gesture control, voice command, mouse functionality and hover – into a single tiny wearable. This gives users the flexibility to interact with each type of digital content in the most intuitive way, whether they choose to do so from up close or from a distance of up to 100 feet away. Bird is also the first device to feature multi-user input functionality, allowing up to 10 people to interact with the same content simultaneously.
“Bird redefines the way people interact with digital media,” said Rami Parham, CEO of MUV Interactive. “Our team has put together a miracle of engineering that not only supports today’s applications, but pushes the envelope of what is possible in future ones.”
Bird is optimized for several different sectors, including:
Education: Educational digital content can now be controlled from anywhere in the classroom. The multi-user feature gives students the chance to exchange ideas and collaborate with teachers and fellow students. Because it adapts easily to the most popular operating systems, BIRD has limitless potential for all existing and future digital learning sources.
Corporate: Bird’s multi-user input functionality enables greater employee collaboration, hastening the development process and enabling fast results.
Professional: Bird is a powerful tool for professional speakers and presenters, allowing them to fully engage their audiences through 3D models, web-based applications, animations and more, all while roaming freely around the room. Its capabilities also go beyond presentations and product demonstrations to include medical applications, real estate construction projects, marketing campaigns and more.
Home: Bird is an all-in-one-solution for the smart home, allowing users to control display screens, TVs, cellphones, smart appliances, virtual/augmented reality entertainment, IOT gadgets and even drones.
