Gloves Turn

Students from Washington University Navid Azodi and Thomas Prior received a prize of $ 10,000 for the creation of a worn device – the Turn gloves. They scan the position and movement of the hands, and then transmit data to the computer via Bluetooth.

To analyze the transmitted information, young inventors used algorithms similar to those used in the Apple-Siri voice system. They thoroughly studied the work of neural networks with reference to artificial intelligence , which helped them create gloves that recognize a specific sign language. As soon as the system fixes coincidences, the computer begins to voice the words.

Gloves are designed for people who are deaf. With their help, communication is greatly simplified. Turn’s gloves are light, compact, ergonomic, which, according to Thomas Prior, will enable them to be used as a daily accessory.
