Designed by Mac Funamizu, this communication device translates hand gestures into voice modulations for people who are deaf or who are hard of hearing.

This sign language translator erases the possibility of any communication barriers that the hearing impaired may face on a daily basis. Equipped with speakers and a sensory camera that captures hand motions, this innovative device is simple, compact and stylish. Not only that, but you can also personalize this gadget by choosing from a range of pre-recorded voices!
