The BIRD Wearable Helps Make Any Surface Interactive
Israel based MUV Interactive has produced their first wearable product named “BIRD”. This is a finger based clip that allows any surface to behave more like a touch screen interface. It seems to be particularly well suited for projection based interactions on a flat surface. The Bird System is shipping for a base price of $150 and can support up to 10 simultaneous users with additional touch add-ons of $99 each. Only supported on Windows.
BIRD is a tiny wearable for your finger that makes any space interactive.
Touch, push, pull, swipe and grab your content from anywhere in the room; You are not limited by your location.
BIRD attaches to your index finger and communicates directly with your smartphone, PC or tablet – it’s the true meaning of being free.
