Doublepoint introduced its WowMouse app at CES 2024, marking a new era in wearable technology and interactive digital interfaces. Leveraging the company’s powerful core algorithm, WowMouse uses micro-gestures to transform smartwatches into wrist-based mice.

Since its debut, the app has achieved more than 55,000 downloads. Now with an AR feature, WowMouse provides an input solution for greater flexibility and options, catering to diverse environments and use cases.

WowMouse AR works with Magic Leap 2.

By Bluetooth-pairing a Magic Leap 2 with an Android smartwatch running WowMouse, users can activate “WowMouse AR Mode.” This feature allows seamless control of AR environments through gaze and pinch interactions using Magic Leap’s latest headset.

Doublepoint’s gesture control capabilities with WowMouse have earned it a spot as a top finalist in the Best Interaction Product category at this year’s Auggie Awards. The awards will be presented on June 19 at AWE.

Magic Leap supports members of its developer ecosystem, like Doublepoint, in building AR accessories like WowMouse AR which are compatible with Magic Leap 2. The opportunities to transform how people can enhance their work experiences are endless with intuitive assistance from devices with gesture and control features.
