A Ukrainian team has developed EnableTalk, electronic gloves that allows deaf/mute individuals to communicate with others that do not understand sign language. The gloves are embedded with flex sensors, a microcontroller, an accelerometer, a gyroscope and a compass to sense the position of the glove in space. Used in conjunction with a smartphone, the gloves can translate sign language into speech for those who do not know sign language.
