ASL Game Controller

Microsoft's new gesture-based game controller will support ASL. The patent for Kinect includes an illustration showing a user spelling out words with their hands. The product's main purpose will be to allow users control of a game without a hand-held device. A gesture may be interpreted as if the user were pressing a letter or number on a keyboard. It is not clear whether the feature will be part of the Kinect launch in November. It is expected to run about $150.
