Never learned to read sign language? No problem. Engineers at University of San Diego have you covered.
This new low cost glove translates sign language for you and sends the words to your phone. According to the designers, the glove is “capable of wirelessly translating the American Sign Language (ASL) alphabet into text displayable on a computer or smartphone.” It uses “strain sensors” that are “integrated with a wearable electronic module consisting of digitizers, a microcontroller, and a Bluetooth radio.” All this was announced in an article posted in the journal Plos One.
So, go ahead, put a glove on it.
