6th Sense

6th Sense

This innovation is a Sign Language to Speech Translator aimed at facilitating communication between a deaf person who uses sign language with another person that does not understand sign language.

This innovation facilitates this through the use of a portable glove that captures hand gestures and translates them into sound (or voice output). Using low cost sensors, the glove captures finger and hand movements and transmits them over a Bluetooth link to a mobile phone application that translates them into voice and/or text output.

Primary target for 6th sense is the deaf community of Uganda
