These translating smart gloves are helping people with hearing impairments communicate with people who don't understand sign language. Featured at the Computex Global Trade Show in Taipei, these black gloves come equipped with finger sensors, accelerators and gyrators that can not only understand and differentiate between various hand gestures, but can preform real-time translation, providing a text transcript to its paired smartphone app. The artificial intelligence utilized in the gloves offers 90% accuracy, promising to better connect people to each other.

The development of these gloves mean that people who communicate using sign language can now effectively interact with people who do not understand sign. This is an innovation the deaf community has been waiting for that provides an accurate translating tool that doesn't impose itself on either party.
