Arutz Sheva spoke with the creators of a new Israeli-made technology, Umoove.

Umoove is an amazing and natural user interface for mobile devices and tablets. Umoove's technology can recognize and track even the most subtle head and eye movements in the most unstable environments, such as the mobile space.

Umoove CEO Moti Krispil explained that Umoove uses head and eye movement to control the applications and content that can be found on a mobile device.

“The uses are infinite,” he said. “Gaming, entertainment, helping people with disabilities, homeland security, book reading and so on.”

Krispil added, “Our vision is that every developer out there will include our API as a built-in feature in its application. We are going to allow anyone who develops applications, on any platform, to utilize our technology.”

“Our ultimate goal,” said Krispil, “is to have it built-in with the operating system.”
