Google Gesture gives a voice to sign language users
This idea comes from students of Berghs. Using very recent technology (inspired by the work of Thalmic labs) students have come up with a way to give deaf people a voice.
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.
