Glove Translates Sign Language in Real-time

Americas, Assistive Technology, July 6 2020

BIOENGINEERS have built a glove able to translate sign language to speech in real-time.

The cutting-edge glove features thin, stretchable sensors running to the fingertips. These sensors can detect motions and finger placement through electrically conducting yarns. Those sensors are then connected to a tiny circuit board – approximately the size of a coin worn on users’ wrists.
