Google Gesture

For some people, sign language a must. But most people don’t understand sign language, which means a lot of interesting conversations never take place. How can we help Google bridge the gap between those who use sign language and those who don’t?

Google Gestures is a service that translates sign language into speech. It analyses the muscle activity and position of the hand and forearm using electromyography and translates it in a smartphone application into speech – real time.
