Kochi-based RHLvision Interactive LLP, a Startup Village incubatee which develops gesture-based technologies for individuals and enterprises, has raised an undisclosed amount in seed funding from Delhi-based healthcare services provider Malik Radix Healthcare, a source associated with the development told Techcircle.in.
“RHLvision raised the funding three months ago, and the amount is being used for developing a wearable gesture interface,” the source said.
When contacted, RHLvision COO Famees T confirmed the development but declined to share details.
RHLvision (RHL stands for Robotic Human Logic) was founded in 2012 by Rohildev N (CEO), who holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and engineering. The startup has developed a wearable device, called Fin that can convert one’s palm into a gesture interface to interact with devices such as TV. Using this device, one can swipe his/her finger in the air to turn on the TV or surf channels.
Early this year, the company rolled out a device to help surgeons use the computer without touching it while carrying out surgeries. This device helps doctors navigate patients’ records while in operation theatres as well as interact with surgeons abroad in real time, even by standing four metres away from the computer screen.
In an interaction with Techcircle.in in May this year, Rohildev had said that RHLvision was in talks with a major hospital in Kerala to install the device. The company offers two more products—FernePlayer and Tryara. FernePlayer is a free music player for smartphones while Tryara is a virtual trial room which allows users to try out various jewellery designs.
A few weeks ago, RHLvision was selected from India among the 50 globally for Pioneers Festival, one of Europe’s largest startup events.
