Gloves that can translate sign language into text or speech 

“SignAloud,” is a pair of gloves that can recognise hand gestures that correspond to words and phrases in American Sign Language.

Each glove contains sensors that record hand position and movement and send data wirelessly via Bluetooth to a central computer.

The computer looks at the gesture data through various sequential statistical regressions, similar to a neural network. If the data match a gesture, then the associated word or phrase is spoken through a speaker. Click here to read more about this invention
