-------- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To create a prototype of a sign language interpreter glove for an Android smartphone for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing to communicate with individuals who are not familiar with sign language. Google developers, Saron Paz, Oleg Imanilov, Zvika Markfeld, and Tomer Daniel have developed a prototype glove, Show & Tell, a gesture-sensing glove that instantly translates sign language into text through an Android smartphone. Show & Tell incorporates a number of sensors to detect hand gestures which are then interpreted via a smartphone application to produce text. Flex sensors embedded in the fingers of the glove detect finger position while an accelerometer and tilt sensor detect hand movement and orientation. While this prototype is in the early stages and the interpretation application is only available through Android smartphones, Show & Tell offers a simple and cheap interface for individuals not versed in sign language to communicate with individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The prototype also could be used for a variety of applications such as live translation of sign language speeches without need for a live sign language interpreter. AUTHOR: Gavin Corley.
