Android Sign Language Interpreting Glove

It’s hard not to get excited when you see assistive technology like the sign language interpreting Show & Tell Glove from Tel Aviv area makers Oleg Imanilov, Zvika Markfield, Saron Paz, and Tomer Daniel. The glove uses a LillyPad Arduino to sample flex sensors, an accelerometer, and gyro into an ADK board that then talks to an Android app that translates sign language and gestures into written text. To improve performance, a neural network is fed gestures manually to compensate for varying hand sizes directly on the handset. They’re still working out the bugs, but the current results are more than encouraging. [via TNW]
