Doublepoint has debuted the free Wow Mouse software for Wear OS smartwatches. This app enables touch-free control of computers, tablets, AR/VR/XR headsets, and smart homes through hand gestures and motions.

Doublepoint has released the Wow Mouse app for Wear OS smartwatches on the Google Play Store. This innovative app enables touch-free, remote control of electronics over Bluetooth connections with hand gestures.

Wow Mouse is a software application that picks up movement of a Wear OS watch. Users can control their electronics as if they were using a physical mouse to point, select, and move. Simple finger gestures replace mouse button clicks while arm movements replace mouse movements. This frees users' hands while controlling their computers, phones, tablets, AR/VR/XR headsets, and smart home.

In the era of COVID-19, touch-free control of electronics also eliminates contact transmission of viruses and bacteria while keeping glossy touchscreens free of fingerprints. Those with limited mobility can control the lights, doors, and other electronics in their smart homes from their beds or chairs.

Doublepoint is also offering their Doublepoint Evaluation Kit to developers on preorder here. This kit allows app developers to extend the gesture capabilities for custom applications and devices. For VR enthusiasts who want full body interaction, why not try a body tracker system today (like this one at Amazon).
