Weekly Device: SignAloud


The SignAloud gloves can translate sign language(American Sign Language) to speech. This helps people who normally have trouble to communicate, such as deaf or mute people. It gives them a voice in a sense.

With sensors on the wrists and hands it can measure movement and position, and which signs are made.  This is then sent via bluetooth to a computer, which then turns it into a phrase, using text to speech.
