---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a sign language interpretation glove that allows individuals who are deaf or have hearing disabilities and use sign language to communicate with people who can hear and do not understand sign language. Cornell University engineering students Ranjay Krishna, Seonwoo Lee, and Si Ping Wang with the assistance of Jonathan Lang, created a device to close the gap in communication between hearing people and those with hearing disabilities who use sign language. Their prototype glove uses accelerometers, contact sensors and flex sensors to translate complex finger gestures from the American Sign Language (ASL) alphabet into spoken letters. After converting hand positions to digital signals, the test unit both speaks out the resulting letters and sends them to a computer, where they can be used for anything from a game to, presumably, constructing whole sentences. The glove and its transmitter are both wireless and powered by 9-volt batteries. AUTHOR: Jon Fingas. TITLE: Sign language translator turns gestures into spoken letters, makes for a better world.
