"Our company vision is to develop innovative human/machine interface solutions with our advanced imaging technologies. Providing the capability for users to easily operate their phones with simple hand movements creates a smooth, intuitive interaction for users to heighten their enjoyment of advanced technologies," said Dennis Lo, President, PixArt Imaging USA. "We believe this gesture sensor will help to spur new innovative trends in user gestures for application not only in smart phones but also in other devices as well."
Currently, the Pantech IM-A880S (VEGA LTE-A) user gestures include:
- Basic navigation (Up, Down, Left, Right) for browsing or scrolling Web pages
- Zoom In/Out function for pictures or 3-D space movement
- Scroll gestures for forward and reverse movement and volume control through video or music
- Motion detection for phone wake-up or silence applications
