In September, I won a Leap Motion Controller at a hackathon and started thinking about what I could build with it. After playing around with the SDK a little bit to understand what kind of data I could get, I thought it would be cool to build a translator for sign language.
What if you spoke a different language than your friends and family? For many deaf people who communicate through sign language, this is an everyday reality. The people at MotionSavvy are breaking down these barriers by combining Leap Motion technology with language translation software. Being deaf themselves, they all have a personal stake in building a more expressive future.
