More wearable computing innovation. This is pretty cool:
Microsoft’s 10th annual Imagine Cup, a competition focusing on student technology innovations, ended today with a Ukrainian team taking the top place prize of $25,000. Team quadSquad developed a pair of sensory gloves, called EnableTalk, that translate sign language gestures into speech using a Bluetooth-enabled Windows Phone and Microsoft’s Speech and Bing APIs. The team’s project is designed to improve the lives of deaf and mute individuals by allowing them to communicate verbally.
Microsoft and Microsoft Imagine Cup are clients but I was not involved in this years competition.
