Inspirational appetizers on unusual startups, emerging trends and bleeding-edge research

Helping hand

These days, translation programmes and apps help people from different countries to communicate with one another.

There’s even an app that reads lips. Now, thanks to a London-based startup, technical support is available for those using sign language.

The company’s brainchild: a glove which can recognize over 100 types of sign language using integrated sensors.

Signs are sent to a mobile app via Bluetooth, where they are converted into language and read out by a loudspeaker.

The solution speaks over thirty languages, with voice options such as speed and tone tailored to individual needs.

It’s even possible to teach it new signs. And it’s child-friendly. For use at home or in the playground.

Gloverall superb!
