As reported in IVC, The ‘Moove’ MP3 player, which is available only for the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device, has been downloaded from Nokia’s Ovi Store by more than half a million users in less than four months

eyeSight Mobile Technologies, a developer of Hand Gesture Interface solutions for mobile phones and consumer electronics devices, today announced the successful launch of a unique new application which allows users to control a mobile phone MP3 player with simple hand gestures.

“Moove” MP3 Player controlled by eyeSight’s Touch Free Interface technology, offered only to the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic users – has delivered more than half a million downloads from Nokia’s Ovi Store in less than four months. The application dominated OVI’s Top Downloads list for this device.

“The Hand Gesture Interface that offers interaction Beyond Touch, has been enthusiastically adopted by users of touch screen devices,” said Itay Katz eyeSight’s founder & CEO. “We are in talks with mobile phone manufactures to license the Hand Gesture Interface to be integrated into new smartphones.”

“Moove” MP3 player allows users to play or stop tracks, as well as skip between songs by using simple hand gestures above the device’s frontal camera.

So, for instance, people who are running on a treadmill can simply place the device on the treadmill deck and skip songs while running without touching the device. Drivers can operate their smartphones with a wave of the hand, allowing them to control the music player or mobile phone navigation system without looking at the device to find its controls.

The Touch Free technology can be applied to any camera-enabled device, including mobile phones, navigation systems, netbooks, MP3 players and more.
