This idea comes from students of Berghs School of Communications. Using very recent technology (inspired by the work of Thalmic labs) the students have come up with a way to give deaf people a voice.
Google Gesture would work by measuring hand movements and interpreting hand signals. The information is then sent to a mobile where a computer generated voice can repeat the words.
We love this idea because in one move it gives everybody the ability to understand sign language, and best of all, it gives deaf people the ability to be understood by everybody.
It's hardly surprising that this idea is one of the winners of Future Lions 2014.
Google Gesture could become a reality just months from now when Thalmic Labs release their Myo armband. We really do hope that someone explores this and looks into making this idea a reality.
