UNI is an ingenious sign language translator gadget that helps people who are deaf and hard-of-hearing to communicate with non-deaf people. While there are numerous sign languages that help deaf people communicate with each other, it's difficult for deaf and non-deaf people to communicate unless both are well versed in sign language. This is where the UNI comes in.

The UNI system consists of a tablet, a case with integrated motion tracking capability and a companion mobile app. As users perform sign language gestures, they can see themselves through a mirror image that provides real-time translation of their sign.

The developers of the UNI sign language translator system have taken to Kickstarter in an attempt to raise $100,000 in funds to bring their idea to reality. Early backers will be able to procure the device for $300 less than its expected retail price.
