The eye tracking and gaze analytic tech startup and a member company of the Born2Global Centre, VisualCamp, released on March 5th “SeeSo Web Analysis”, a mobile web analysis app, for free. SeeSo Web Analysis is an app where a user can enter a web URL and track their eyes as they use the website. The app then provides an analysis of gaze data in real time.

 

Their analytics provide where you are focusing through heatmaps, the path you visually take, and how long you are looking. Currently SeeSo Web Analysis is available on the iOS App Store with the Android version to be released next.

 

Yunchan Suk, CEO of VisualCamp, said, “There has been limited access for eye tracking to the public. With VisualCamp, I hope more people can have access and leverage this technology.”

 

VisualCamp introduced the first eye tracking software using only the front camera in smartphones in 2018 and has provided demo apps with mobile eye tracking on a request basis to this date. They have developed six demo apps such as Eye Scrolling, Eye Game, and Eye Page Turner.

 

VisualCamp developed a demo app that recommends products based on gaze data, rather than clicks, in mobile shopping malls as a Proof of Concept (PoC) in September last year with the support of CJ. They tested them on 101 women in their 20s and 30s. According to the test, 71.2% of their testers responded to the recommend product based on their gaze data. VisualCamp found it is possible to indirectly infer user’s purchasing tendencies by quantitatively identifying where people fixated whether it was images, prices, and reviews. These tendencies in a mobile shopping dominant era are a major concern for e-commerce when they try to do personalized marketing and advertising with videos.

 

Meanwhile, VisualCamp, South Korea based eye tracking company has launched US office in California for deploying its mobile eye tracking SDK. Yunchan Suk said, “We are confident that collecting and analyzing user’s gaze data from smartphones will bring new changes to the mobile market especially for US which has many global platforms. It will be useful not only for corporations who want to help their customer base, but also for individual developers and designers in UX to utilize eye tracking and gaze analysis.”

President Moon Jae-in on July 15 held a summit with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin at Cheong Wa Dae on bilateral ties in the high-tech and startup sectors. 

Saying both nations have a complementary economic cooperative system and the common goal of fostering high-tech industries, President Moon said the two sides have high potential for advancing bilateral ties. 

"The ratification of a free trade agreement between Korea and Israel will significantly expand cooperation in trade, investment and the service sector," he added. 

President Moon also mentioned the vibrancy of information and communication technology startups in Israel, saying the Korean government wants to learn from their success. 

Rivlin said cooperation in startups will be good for both countries in helping them overcome the challenges imposed by the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

 TwoEyes Tech is a startup that has developed a binocular 360-degree field-of-view VR camera that captures images using two pairs of fisheye lenses arranged 65 millimeters apart, just like the eyes of a human, thus allowing for a more comfortable VR experience.

TwoEyes Tech, a member company of the K-ICT Born2Global Centre, made sure that the VR images it produces mirrors human eyesight by taking the standard distance between human eyes into consideration when capturing the images. As a result, the images show a three-dimensional representation of the world as people see it. In only one filming session, the VR camera captures 360-degree 3D video that can be viewed on VR headsets, smartphones, computer monitors, and 3D TVs. The videos, in full HD, 3D, and red-cyan mode, can be converted from and into 180-degree and 360-degree content, meaning that a single recording can be converted into six different types of content.

Moreover, filming with the camera is quite easy. When held horizontally, the camera records in binocular mode; when held vertically, it records in monocular mode. The recordings it produces can be viewed immediately on a smartphone or uploaded to social media.

A pair of lenses captures mass appeal and innovation

TwoEyes Tech's technology for shooting in various modes using two pairs of fisheye lenses has already started gaining recognition around the world. In November, the company was granted a CES 2018 Innovation Award, which is given to companies that have developed products that meet certain standards of innovation, functionality, design, and other criteria at the world's largest annual trade show. Visitors of CES 2018 can experience and try TwoEyes Tech's products at the Eureka Park Marketplace in Hall G, Booth #51677, throughout the length of the tradeshow, which runs Jan. 9-12, 2018, at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.

General consumers also began showing interest in TwoEyes Tech as well. The company's recent crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter managed to secure investments from 699 backers totaling nearly USD 190,000, which is almost five times more than its original goal of $40,000 USD. In the coming year, the company is planning to begin official sales through mass production, and another funding project on Makuake, a Japanese crowdfunding site, is in the works as well.

Song HunJoo, CEO of TwoEyes Tech said: "We are planning to revamp our product name for a more global audience once we start mass producing and selling the cameras. The challenge we are facing now is to create a quality product that functions well and is easy to use."

Aiming for video software beyond VR

Song aims to expand TwoEyes Tech's business from VR cameras to video-related software, to which his years of experience in the computer graphics and 3D video industry can be applied to create a growth engine for the company. In addition to its VR cameras, TwoEyes Tech is planning to unveil a VR video editing program as well.

The reason Song decided on a VR camera as the product with which TwoEyes Tech would enter the overseas market lies in his career experience as well. Prior to founding TwoEyes Tech, Song worked as a developer, creating a VR application called "ARC Interactive." As the VR market began growing, Chinese companies such as Huawei requested the production of VR cameras that could be embedded in cellphones, and thus TwoEyes Tech was born.

"When I received those requests from Chinese companies, I immediately thought that was something that had market demand," remarked Song. "So, we started developing a VR camera in cooperation with Intops and other manufacturers, based our determination to create a product that could be competitive in the global market."

Aside from VR cameras, TwoEyes Tech also plans to unveil multi-angle cameras that can film at various angles simultaneously and playback the recorded videos freely. The next product in the works is TwoEyes Hover, which allows the user to change the direction of the camera by simply touching the display and quickly rotate the camera by swiping across the screen. The company's goal is to allow people to create 360-degree videos like those in the Matrix movie without having to use special filming techniques or effects.

Song commented, "Our goal is to grow into a company that can shake up the VR camera market. My main goals, however, are to contribute to the growth of the VR industry and improve upon our technology so that it can become the standard for VR video capture."

Snap’s Spectacles are having a spectacular debut today, with (at least) hundreds of people lining up at their first Snapbot pop-up vending machine location in Venice Beach. We got the chance to speak to a few of those lucky enough to have grabbed some today, and they told us what it’s like to use the clip capturing face wear.

Jameson Detweiler, co-founder and CEO of AR startup Fantasmo.io, shared his pics and video of what it’s like to buy Spectacles from Snapchat’s adorable vending bot, and also shared some of this thoughts with TC about using them via email:

So I’m not a huge Snapchat user, but I’m building an AR startup, so clearly I need to be playing with these. And they’re a blast. I actually think this is going to get me to use Snapchat more.

They’re about as simple as possible. You pair them with your iPhone over Bluetooth. Just point them at the QR code on your phone. Then you give them a name. Once that’s done, put them on, tap the button, and it records 10 seconds of video. The LED lights spin while you’re recording. HD video requires you to set up wifi to import.

Specs has a dedicated button on the camera screen underneath the main photo button. Tapping it takes you to the Specs section of Memories. Everything syncs up pretty quickly (in SD over Bluetooth). You can pick a Story and then edit it with stickers, 3D stickers, text, etc. It doesn’t look like you can do any Lenses, including World Lenses, which makes sense because those are activated before you shoot on the regular Snapchat.

The circular video is super cool. Being able to rotate your phone and see more is pretty awesome.
