Gloves that turn sign language and gestures on Speech.
Three Ukrainian students invented sensory gloves that work with an app to turn sign language into automated speech. The Enable Talk project won first place at Microsoft’s Imagine Cup 2012 this week in Syndey, Australia. Their Enable Talk glove gives deaf and hearing-impaired individuals the ability to communicate with those who don’t know sign language. See more for video.
The current product prototype retails around $50. In the short future with the savings and profits that come with mass production Enable Talk sets will likely be $20 each.
