The Text Glove

A new gesture-sensing glove works with an Android app to translate sign language into text. Still in its early stages, the Text Glove would allow someone wearing the glove to use sign language and the non-signer could read the text version on a smart phone through an Android app. The developers use sensors to detect hand gestures along with an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and Lilypad Arduino. They demonstrated the prototype at a Google developers event in Tel Aviv last month. See a demonstration in the video below.
