Motorola Mobility has acquired facial recognition firm Viewdle for an undisclosed amount. A company statement said,” Motorola and Viewdle have an existing commercial agreement and have been collaborating for some time.”
Based in Silicon Valley, Viewdle is a leading imaging and gesture recognition company. Viewdle sits between the camera and the consumer—introducing new user experiences in mobile interaction, augmented reality, photo management, gaming, social networking, and marketing.
Motorola was acquired by Internet giant Google for $12.5 billion last year.
