Mudra Band – Touch Free Control for Apple Watch
How come you operate your phone with one hand, but your watch requires two?! With Mudra Band, you get to control your watch using only the hand that wears it, even when you have gloves on or when your hands are wet.
Urgent calls that demand your response have a way of coming in just when you’re trying to get other things done. Mudra Band lets you accomplish your tasks without using your nose to take or dismiss important watch events.
With Mudra Band, you don’t need to stop, stand, look at the watch, touch it, or use your other hand to control your musical soundtrack. Simply move your fingers to switch tracks, skip around, adjust the volume, etc., and keep exercising without interruption.
When you intend to move a finger, electrodes in the Mudra Band capture the neural signals sent from your brain, through the wrist, to your fingers. Our patented SNC sensors capture the signals, while our deep learning AI algorithms decipher the signal pattern and classify which finger is being moved. Finally, we bind each signal pattern to a control function on your watch.
The Mudra band offers a delightful and enjoyable interaction and immerses the user in the watch experience with gestures that are simple to perform, intuitive and easy to remember. Mudra gestures are defined based on extensive behavioural research, in order to provide the most natural interaction method.
Mudra supports discrete, continuous, and air-touch interactions.
- Discrete gestures are individual finger movements – such as a single finger moving, or the soft tap of a finger on the thumb
- Continuous gestures are various fingertip pressure gradations applied to physical objects or other fingers
- Air-touch gestures combine fingertip pressure and an air mouse – such as sliding to unlock
The Mudra Band is compatible with Apple Watch series 3 and above, and with iPhone 7 and above. The band comes with an adapter that fits 38mm, 40mm, 42mm and 44mm watch sizes and can lengthen or shorten the circumference of the band for different wrist sizes.
What are Biopotentials?
Biopotentials are electric potentials (typically on a scale of micro-volts) produced by the electrochemical activity of excitable cells in the nervous system of the body.
