Quantum Interface Launches Intuitive, Easy Navigation for Augmented Reality Based on Motion and Predictive Navigation

Quantum Interface to Showcase Unique UI/UX on the Latest Epson Moverio AR Glasses

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2015) - Augmented World Expo - Users wearing Augmented Reality (AR) glasses and participating in virtual worlds will find their AR experience transformed through the most advanced user experience and user interface launching today from Quantum Interface (Qi). The new interface allows anyone under a hood or wearing the specialized glasses to navigate the AR world with their thumbs moving on a connected touchpad interface. This approach resolves the vexing problem of how to scroll, navigate or select while wearing heads-up displays or glasses. [See video here: http://tinyurl.com/quantumAR]

The Qi technology will be demonstrated with Epson's new Moverio smart glasses at the Augmented World Expo (June 8-10) in Santa Clara, booth 5. The new Qi interface will help enable widespread use and adoption of this exciting new device now available for purchase in the market.

This AR interface launch follows on the heels of Quantum Interface's recent introduction of its sensor-agnostic, multi-device interface technology that is uniquely responsive to motion, analyzing the speed and direction of any input to determine user intent. For the Augmented Reality version, input is based on speed and direction of a user's finger on a touchpad. For other devices and applications, the input can be fingers on a touchpad or fingers or hands in space (touchless) or using eyes in conjunction with an eye tracker, or any combination of those inputs.

By analyzing motion to predict intent, the Qi interface for AR reacts to changes of speed and direction as a user moves his or her thumb on the touchpad. The Augmented Reality interface highlights the power of this new technology, adding to the company's first commercial implementation in beta -- the wearable Qi Android smartwatch launcher, QiLaunch Wear.

"We have been developing our interface to be highly intuitive and easy to use, and it's very well-suited to Augmented Reality and navigating while under a hood or wearing the glasses," said Jonathan Josephson, CTO and founder, Quantum Interface. "The revolutionary new interface delivers the most advanced and intuitive interface for AR with a dramatically different user experience."

How does the Qi interface work on Epson's AR glasses? When the user moves toward a menu selection with a finger on a touchpad, the app infers the choice, and literally moves toward the user, opening up the next levels of information. By using this predictive interface while wearing Epson Moverio glasses (as well as other AR and VR devices), menu navigation and content selection is exponentially faster and uses less power, making Epson's next generation smart glasses highly user-friendly.

Quantum Interface will be in the Epson Booth #5 at AWE, demo'ing its UI/UX on the new Epson Moverio glasses.
