There have been some awesome strides in the health tech industry – and this latest development is just another leap in the right direction thanks to the Creative Scientists at UCLA
The wearable device contains sensors that run along the four fingers and thumb to identify each word, phrase or letter as it is made in American Sign Language.
“Bioengineers have designed a glove-like device that can translate American Sign Language into English speech in real time through a smartphone app. Their research is published in the journal Nature Electronics.”
“Our hope is that this opens up an easy way for people who use sign language to communicate directly with non-signers without needing someone else to translate for them,” says Jun Chen, Lead Researcher and Professor
And this is just the beginning, Jun goes on to share “we hope it can help more people learn sign language themselves.”

We can’t wait to see how this can transform the lives of those it’s meant to serve – as more and more Creatives test and tinker, sky’s the limit as they say
