Electric glove translates sign language

神奇手套可翻译手语

An electric glove that can convert sign language into text messages has been unveiled by U.S. scientists.

The US$100 device will allow deaf people to instantly send messages to those who don’t understand sign language, according to its inventors.

The device, which was developed at the University of California, San Diego, can convert the 26 letters of American Sign Language into text that can be viewed on a smartphone or computer.

The device consists of a sports glove that has been fitted with nine stretchable sensors positioned over the knuckles. When a user bends their fingers or thumb to sign a letter, the sensors stretch, which causes an electrical signal to be produced. These signals are then processed by software to figure out the configuration* of the hand.

Motion sensors are also fitted to the back of the glove to record whether the hand is moving or still.

The information from the glove is then sent via Bluetooth to an app on a smartphone or computer, which will then display a translated version of the message. The system has low power requirements.

The glove can only interpret letters rather than words, meaning that users must spell out their messages letter by letter.(SD-Agencies)
