Growing company and users!

Gense Technologies is a biotech startup developing state-of-the-art technology for our patented hand-gesture recognition smartwatch. The technology has a wide range of applications including sign language to voice translation for deaf and mute users, medical diagnostics, VR/AR gaming control, smartphone and smart home control.

Our company is a Cyberport incubatee, Top 9 of Alibaba Jumpstarter in Advanced Technologies, HKU Dreamcatchers Grand Prize Winner, and the Hong Kong winner of the Asia Social Innovation Challenge.

Our founders are PhDs and researchers with academic backgrounds in Stanford, Cambridge, HKU and HKUST.

The inner-structure of your wrist changes with your hand gesture, as specific set of muscle group and tendons contract and relax correspondingly.

Gense wristband contains multiple electrodes that touch your skin around the wrist. Through procedural stimulation and a back projection process, a bio-signal web would be constructed to form a live dynamic bio-image. Gense detects your hand gesture through bio-image reconstruction and recognition with machine learning algorithms.

The technology is developed by a team of five entrepreneurs with academic backgrounds in Cambridge, Stanford, HKU and HKUST. The team consists of two Ph.Ds in bio-medical engineering specializing in human imaging, an electronics expert with experiences in Huawei, a software engineer in cloud computing and machine learning, and a dedicated entrepreneur.

If required, the R&D cost could be supported by possible commercial spin-offs, should the project require early monetization. Whilst spin-offs in gaming control, gesture training in sports science and music, lifestyle application are all possibilities, our sole focus will remain in sign language translation technology development.
