Smart wearables can not only keep us connected, they could make life easier for people who deal with hearing or speech impairments. Take this “smart glove” for instance. Designed by Hadeel Ayoub, it improves communication between people with difficult disabilities. It translates sign language gesture into visual letters on a screen. These smart gloves have flex sensors, an accelerometer, a microcontroller board, and a four digit graphic numerical display.

Hadeel also developed a computer program to make sense of the data these gloves generate. The latest prototype has a text-to-speech chip as well. The next version will include a smartphone and tablet app.
