signaloud-wearable-tech-glovesTwo University students have designed a special pair of gloves that lets the wearer turn the sign language into spoken words.

Navid Azodi and Thomas Pryor are both students at University of Washington and winners of the £6.900 ($10.000) prize for their wearable tech invention.

The “SignAloud” gloves are embedded with smart sensors that can record your hand positions and the movements in advance and then send the data via Bluetooth to a computer where an algorithm is used to translate the gestures into words.
