YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, Feb. 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wearable Devices Ltd. (the “Company” or “Wearable Devices”) (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW), a technology growth company specializing in AI-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced that as part of its business strategy to offer the Mudra Band’s users more intuitive ways to interact with their devices in the Apple ecosystem, the Company decided to explore compatibility between its flagship product, the Mudra Band, and the newly launched Apple Vision Pro.

The Mudra Band, known for its innovative approach to device control through neural input and gesture recognition, has been a game-changer in the wearable technology market. With the arrival of the Apple Vision Pro in U.S. stores, Wearable Devices sees a significant opportunity to enhance user interaction with this groundbreaking smart eyewear using its for intuitive real object interaction capabilities.

The key challenge in mixed reality is creating seamless interactions between the physical and digital worlds. Using Intuitive Real Object Interaction, Mudra’s capability to detect pressure at the fingertips can indicate when a real object is being pressed or manipulated, while Vision Pro’s hand tracking identifies the specific action and object involved. This synergy allows users to interact with real objects as naturally as they would with virtual ones, bridging the gap between the two realms.

The combination of Mudra’s innovative pressure detection with the Apple Vision Pro’s AR capabilities would represent a significant step forward in mixed reality technology. It exemplifies how the potential integration of complementary technologies could lead to more immersive, intuitive, and practical applications across a wide range of fields.

“We are excited about the potential integration of the Mudra Band with the Apple Vision Pro. Apple Vision Pro utilizes input from multiple cameras, and we believe that our pressure detection technology can enhance and improve the offerings of Apple Vision Pro to its users. This integration has the potential to introduce new features across a variety of uses and applications,” said Asher Dahan, Chief Executive Officer of Wearable Devices. “Our aim is to examine and develop a seamless compatibility that will offer Apple Vision Pro users a novel way to interact with their device, enhancing both functionality and user experience.”
