Hello World’s Ashlee Vance taps into Jerusalem’s budding tech scene by visiting Umoove, a young company that’s trying to imbue tablets and smartphones with new powers. With Umoove’s software, a mobile device can look out at someone and detect their eye and head movements. People can fly through a video game just by moving their head side to side or issue a command to their computer with a blink.
The technology’s applications stretch into the medical field too. Just by following eye movements, Umoove can perform concussion and sobriety checks and potentially detect Alzheimer’s and strokes as well. (Source: Bloomberg)
