The Language of Glove: Smart Glove That Translates ASL

Meet the Language of Glove: a smart glove that wirelessly translates the American Sign Language alphabet. Developed by Engineers at the University of California San Diego, the device was made using stretchable and printable electronics.

As the researchers explain:

The sensors are made of thin strips of a silicon-based polymer coated with a conductive carbon paint. The sensors are secured onto the glove with copper tape. Stainless steel thread connects each of the sensors to a low power, custom-made printed circuit board that’s attached to the back of the wrist.

This video shows the glove in action. More info is available here.
