Smart glove that helps the speech impaired communicate better
Students of Bengaluru's Amrita School of Engineering have developed a smart glove called Mudra which converts hand gestures based on Indian sign language into spoken English.
This could open the way for the speech-impaired to communicate more effectively with others. The glove is designed to convert hand gestures in Indian sign language to voice.
The glove has a vast potential and can also be used for gaming stations, remote control of devices, and the medical industry.
It can worn be comfortably like a glove and recognizes hand gestures in all directions and angles.
The prototype took 16 weeks to build and costs Rs 7,500. The glove can currently recognize numbers from 1 to 10, and Indian sign language gestures corresponding to words such as morning, night, goodbye and thank you.
