A team of enthusiastic developers have designed a wonderful wearable communication tool in form of a glove, named ‘Show & Tell.’ The tool is meant to help hearing-impaired to send texts from their Android phones through some hand gestures. Wearing the glove, users can type what is to be sent as texts or e-mails to their contacts. But some analysts are perplexed of the requirement of a glove-shaped tool to help hearing-impaired people send texts. Actually, those guys can already send texts without the help of any external accessories.
Whatever it may be, it is not the time to make a definite conclusion over the innovative design, because it is just in prototype mode now. Its designers Oleg Imanilov, Tomer Daniel and Zvika Markfeld are still working with the Show & Tell project. The tool, as revealed in a video (watch it below) from its designers, works quite fantastically. Users of the glove just need to make some gestures with their hands to get contents typed on an Android phone.
The tool seems to work only with an Android phone as it is built with ADK Board (Android Open Accessory Development Kit). The communication tool further features a Lilypad Arduino, gyroscope sensor, accelerometer and flex sensors on the fingers. You can connect it with a phone using cable. Designers of the tool are about to realize the glove with its full-fledged features. Then, we can clearly see what they really intend with the special communication tool for hearing impaired. The device seems to get much more functionality before it is ready for marketing.
