Wearable Devices Unveils Innovative AI-Based Air-Touch Functionality for Android Devices


Android functionality will specifically target the commercial and enterprise markets

YOKNEAM ILLIT, ISRAEL, June 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wearable Devices Ltd. (Nasdaq: WLDS, WLDSW) (“Wearable Devices” or the “Company”), a technology growth company specializing in AI-powered touchless sensing wearables, today announced the extension of its AI-based Air-Touch functionality to now include Android devices, specifically catered to the commercial and enterprise markets (the “B2B market”).

Wearable Devices offers its technology to two distinct markets: (1) the Mudra Band (“Mudra”) for Apple devices, targeting consumers, now open for pre-order and (2) the second solution, Mudra technology with Air-Touch functionality for Android, which enables commercial companies and enterprise to create custom experience for their users.


Air-Touch functionality enables the use of subtle finger movements for point, click, and drag-and-drop digital commands. Mudra’s natural and familiar gestures are used for tap-to-select, pinch-to-scroll, swipe, hold, and to navigate to any area of interest on a connected device. With Air-Touch for Android, businesses utilizing Android products can integrate Air-Touch functionality for the seamless transition of control across devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and PCs, large displays, AR glasses, VR headsets, and other entertainment devices using hands-free and touchless subtle finger and wrist movements.

With millions of apps available on Google Play, our product leverages the popularity and widespread adoption of Android, enabling companies to enhance their offerings with the novel Mudra interface. By partnering with us, companies will be able to provide a superior user experience, tailored for extended reality devices and wearable computing.”

The Company previously announced it had partnered with a Fortune 500 communications equipment company for the integration of the Mudra Air-Touch functionality technology with the partner’s chipset.
