[prMac.com] Hamburg, Germany – Claus Zimmermann announced that a free version of the App TieSight is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Now augmented reality makes it easy for everybody to tie a tie.
TieSight uses the front-facing camera of your device to help you tie a tie. The App shows you how to tie the perfect knot using an image of yourself on your device. All you have to do is to bring yourself into the right position and follow the instructions which TieSight will give you. Since you need to have both hands free while tying the knot, you can control TieSight with sound, just make some noise (e.g. a loud word, a cough or whistle) and TieSight will proceed.
“I am extremely pleased with TieSight, as I am getting a lot of positive feedback from users who used to have problems with tying a tie. Since they use TieSight they are able to tie even more challenging knot types such as the Windsor or Plattsburgh knot without any problem” says Claus Zimmermann, the developer and inventor of TieSight. “Many users even tell me that since they can see the tying instructions superimposed on their image, tying a tie has become fun for them” continues Zimmermann. “As I am convinced that TieSight can help many men tying a tie, I decided to provide a free basic version of my App, so everybody can see how easy tying a tie can be when you get support from augmented reality.”
