Perceptive Devices LLC won the RocketCode Web Development Award at the Cincinnati Innovates competition for its patent pending Percept-D™ technology. Percept-D™ allows users to control diverse electronic devices in a hands-free, voice-free, and mouse-free fashion, while using only gentle motions of the head and simple facial expression such as smiles. Perceptive Devices will receive $5,000 in-kind for web development sponsored by Round Pixel Studio. Perceptive Devices recently joined The Hamilton Mill.
Cincinnati Innovates is an innovation competition that is open to anyone who has an innovation, idea, or invention and has a Greater Cincinnati connection. The competition is designed to showcase the technological, artistic, and ingenious innovations throughout the region. Perceptive Devices CEO and Founder Uday Parshionikar was one of five awardees recognized at the Sixth Annual Cincinnati Innovates Awards ceremony last evening in downtown Cincinnati. Approximately $50,000 in awards are delivered to local entrepreneurs as part of the competition.
Mr.Parshionikar has been developing the Percept-D™ technology over the past few years and recently decided to work with The Hamilton Mill and its vast array of resources. These resources include access to mentors and university partners to help refine the technology and build a solid business plan for taking this product to market. Possible markets for Percept-D™ include the disabled, military, gamers, medical, and industrial users.
Perceptive Devices is currently looking to bring the technology to consumers by partnering with established consumer electronics companies to embed it in wearable devices such as smart glasses, head mounted displays (HMDs), phone/music headsets and more. Perceptive Devices is also developing software apps that will allow hands-free control of computers, tablets and smart phones via webcams.
