Seemove: Digital Payments Upgrade

Seemore, Seeper

UK tech startup Seeper has developed Seemove – a new technology that can track gestures, poses and objects. The technology, which is able to access files and apps on the smartphones it detects, could help drive the expansion of digital payments.

Seemove goes beyond existing gesture-recognition technologies such as Microsoft’s Kinect. Its potential uses range from gaming to healthcare, according to founder Evan Grant.

In retail environments, the technology could be used to track smartphones or wallets in order to initiate payments for online purchases. It could also let users ‘pull’ photos from their mobile devices.

The technology will initially be released to developers as middleware – software that provides services to applications beyond those available from the operating system. The move will allow developers to create apps and software that can be controlled by Seemove.
