Doublepoint

Doublepoint create cutting edge gesture detection algorithms for smartwatches. Doublepoint was founded to solve the AR interaction problem. Our first product is an algorithm designed for smartwatch sensors which can detect subtle microgestures of a user's fingertip at an extremely high accuracy and robustness. This algorithm is so efficient that it removes a AR headset's reliance on camera based hand tracking, making all day lightweight headsets of science fiction finally a reality.
