We know that games are an effective way to learn.

Now a Danish-American creative studio is using the entertainment factor to help people learn the sign language alphabet.

Their interactive PC app communicates with learners via webcam. The system’s algorithm was trained on images and can recognise the correct hand positions.

The app gives users a series of words followed by a 3D model of a hand demonstrating the position for each letter.

Using the PC’s webcam (image data are not saved) the app analyses whether the letters have been correctly formed.

The innovation could help parents and their deaf children communicate from an early age.

For those who don’t know sign language, meanwhile, this glove could come in handy.
