Gloves translate sign-language into spoken words
A team of students from Ukraine have designed gloves that recognize hand movements, such as those used in sign language. The high tech gloves, aimed at people with hearing and speech disabilities, carry an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, and 15 flex sensors along the fingers, thumb and palm that determine the position of the glove in space. The team anticipates selling each glove for around US$200.
