HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Dave Segal is the founder of Naqi Logics, LLC.
His company is partnered with Harrisburg University and is one of the technology firms in a business incubator that is home to several companies developing projects with the financial backing of the university.
Segal says the relationship has been key in securing several patents in the United States, Israel, and the European Union.
Segal says his new software allows users to control computers without touching them or even speaking or looking at them. He says people can control a laptop through their brain waves or micro gestural input, the use of slight facial movements, or a combination of both.
Segal, a York County native, says there are other variations of no-touch technology, but he says that his third patent for a small earbud is the game changer.
“Users will be able to control computers in a completely invisible manner, including two-way invisible communication between users,” Segal said.
Segal says his earbud will change the lives of people who suffer from paralysis amputations and any condition that prevents them from using technology and devices.
“An app can be downloaded for them, and they will have a menu of devices to choose from,” he said.
Segal says he has had conversations with military consultants about how his software can improve communication during combat missions and training exercises.
He says he will target the gaming market, and his technology will even the playing field against those who have exceptional hand-eye coordination.
“Even if you are the number one gamer in the world, you will never be able to move as fast as someone who is looking,” Segal said.
Segal says his software will help those with cell phones and who are connected to IP systems around the world. He says people will be able to do many things, including turning items on and off in their homes and vehicles.
Segal says he hopes to finish development in six to eight months and have the software ready for market within a year.
