OurCrowd’s portfolio company MUV Interactive featured in Fox News

OurCrowd’s portfolio company MUV Interactive was featured in Fox News, a leading American television news network. MUV Interactive is the developer of a pioneering solution that’s enabling users to turn any surface into a touchscreen. Developed by an Israeli company called MUV Interactive, the Bird is currently in beta testing. It will launch next year. The small device attaches to your finger and looks a bit like a ring. The developers say it will only weigh about an ounce. It connects to a base station in the same room which triangulates your exact finger position right down to the centimeter. In the demo for FoxNews.com conducted by Rami Parham, the CEO and founder of MUV, the Bird was used to control a slideshow at first. Parham swiped and clicked on slides. The device can sense pressure-sensitivity, similar to the new 3D Touch feature on the iPhone 6s. The Bird doesn’t require a special projector or software and works by syncing to the MUV base station. MUV Interactive raised $902,000 from OurCrowd investors in August 2013. Read more on Fox News...
