Microsoft Kinect Can Now Translate Sign Language [video]

| August 1, 2013 | Reply


The kinect by Microsoft is an amazing device. When it debuted it was pretty obvious that some of the possibilities with the kinect were amazing. Microsoft has shared a video of the most impressive ability yet for Kinect: Sign Language. Partnering with the Institute of Computing Technology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, MS labs has made it possible for someone to sign into Kinect and have the words translated on screen. This could be very important and revolutionary for people who can only communicate with hands. MS still has a lot of work to do, but with Kinect 2 coming up soon, the tech will be even better behind this great innovation.
