Two students from the University of Washington, Navid Azodi and Thomas Pryor, have created lightweight gloves that can translate sign language instantly.
The SignAloud glove prototype recognizes hand gesture and placements matching them to the correct American Sign Language word or phrase. Sensors throughout the glove pick up the placement and motion data of the hands which is sent to a computer via Bluetooth. The computer analyzes the data, searching for a correlation in its database, and if it recognizes a gesture, then the ASL translation is played through a speaker. This student project has since won the Lemelson-MIT Undergraduate Student Prize and $10,000.
Today I have the pleasure of talking to Charles Dean, author of such amazing LitRPG series as:
The Bathrobe Knight (https://amzn.to/2CeZt7D ),
Merchant of Tiqpa (https://amzn.to/2Bkpn8j ),
and War Aeternus (https://amzn.to/2QAwnIS ).
Now Charles and I have been friends for a while. He and I first started talking when I made a error with the name of one of his series in the review I gave it on the LitRPG Podcast recommendation page. I called it the Bathroom Knight, and he e-mailed me and pointed out that while a story about a a plumber who fought evil would be great, the series was called the Bathrobe Knight. We’ve been friends ever since.
I'm having a nice chat with Harmon Cooper, the author of over 18 novels, including the Feedback Loop series, Fantasy Online series, The Last Warrior of Unigaea series, Cherry Blossom Girls, and Monster Hunter NYC.
