Ukrainian inventors create a ‘super’ glove that converts sign language into speech
A team of Ukrainian inventors have developed a hi-tech glove capable of converting sign language into speech.
EnableTalk is fitted with a complex network of sensors that recognise hand movements and translate signs – which are then converted into spoken word by a smartphone app.
The inventors have already won an award for their design and hope EnableTalk will improve the quality of life of millions of people around the world with speech and hearing impairments.
The hi-tech glove comes complete with flex sensors, touch sensors, gyroscops and accelerometers, as well as solar cells that help keep it powered.
