Sign Language Translator, Hands On

[CES 2009] While we have the benefit of machine translators on the Internet, there is one very crucial group of people who lose out – those who rely on sign language. Fear not – the Sign Language Translator from Krown Manufacturing, Inc. offers a new way of communicating with your friends who rely on sign language. This device stores more than 3,5000 words in sign language and comes with a stylus where you can input the English word to retrieve a video of the equivalent in American Sign Language. The device features a 320 x 240 touchscreen display and is USB rechargeable, capable of running for up to half a dozen hours on a single charge. It will be released sometime in the middle of this year for $199, and owners can benefit from free software updates in the future. Unfortunately, since it is not able to string together a sentence in sign language just yet, you’d best have a basic working knowledge of American Sign Language and rely on this as a reference instead.
