Wow so they use the glove and subtitles appear? That’s pretty cool

Sign language gloves have been a thing for around 20 years. I met a guy who invented them as a teen way back when and has won numerous international awards. Guy nearly had a movie made about him, but he’s extremely modest and now he saves lives contracting with a company that delivers blood by drone in Rwanda. I’m not kidding. Dude’s a quiet hero. I’m not sure if saying his name here is okay or not… he is a public figure but not very well known.

Only the fourth time I can remember sign language translating gloves being “invented” in the last like 10 years. Good job though, still fairly cool I guess.

This technology has been around for years, it’s cool that they’ve been able to replicate it but it isn’t new
