Incoming Technology: Gloves That Translate Sign Language to Speech
August 20, 2012
Still in early stages, but pretty cool:
Making use of sleek black gloves, sophisticated sensors, a microcontroller and a smartphone, students from the Ukraine have created a device that translates sign language into speech.
Called “Enable Talk,” the system won first place in the software design category at Microsoft’s 10th annual Imagine Cup, held this year in Sydney, Australia.
We briefly mentioned something along these lines in Uncle John’s Slightly Irregular Bathroom Reader (page 105), just to note. Nice to see it may be realized before too long.
