Sign Language Ring is a set of rings and a bracelet capable of detecting sign language and translating them. Essentially, the device is able to detect sign language motions and can translate them to voice feedback. Conversely, it can translate voice to text. Inspired by the Buddhist prayer beads, the text is displayed on a screen on the top of the bracelet.
- Sign Language Ring is a translation device in the form of a bracelet with detachable rings.
- When worn on the fingers of the person using sign language, the rings detect and track the signing motions.
- These are translated to voice, which is emitted by the bracelet.
- The user can pre-record their signing movements and assign the appropriate words, which allows the system to be customized to the user’s particular gestures.
- After use, the rings can be set into the bracelet for storage.
The Sign Language Ring is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept Winner.
