The SignLanguageGlove Translates Sign Language Into Text

The SignLanguageGlove is a very simply and highly appropriately named glove that translates sign language into text displays as well as spoken dialogue. This incredible glove is being developed by Hadeel Ayoub, a designer and student at the University of London.

This particular glove is actually the third iteration of Ayoub's vision. It is equipped with five flex sensors that can monitor the curves, bends and angles of fingers and use that information in conjunction with an accelerometer in order to detect the orientation of the globe.

A number of companies have approached Ayoub to mass-produce the SignLanguageGlove in order to spread the capability of translating sign language into text to more people. It is hoped that this technology will be adopted by schools, businesses and medical centers.
