We are excited to welcome Rithmio to our Catapult community! Rithmio is a gesture recognition software company that has developed the world's first platform that can automatically learn new user-defined gestures in six to ten seconds. Once the patterns of movement have been learned, the software is able to automatically and accurately detect, classify and analyze gestures in real time. Rithmio's platform integrates easily with connected devices like wearables or smartphones and can be applied to a plethora of industries, including fitness, human-computer interaction, gaming, healthcare, and security.
"This is an exciting time for Rithmio," said Adam Tilton, Rithmio's co-founder and CEO. "Being a part of the Catapult community gives us a great presence in the city and accessibility to top talent, advisors and investors." The feeling is mutual. As April Lane, Catapult's Executive Director said, "We immediately recognize the groundbreaking technology that Rithmio has invented, and we feel that the team will be a great fit for Catapult."
Rithmio was founded by Adam Tilton and Prashant Mehta at the University of Illinois. The company raised $650,000 in seed funding this fall and plan on growing their team with developers and sales people.
