Check out the MakerSpace from afar with this interative spherical photo!  It was taken by the Spherecam, a low-cost 360 spherical camera using a Raspberry Pi and custom parts 3D printed in the MakerSpace.

SignAloud Gloves

Navid Azodi and Thomas Pryor

SignAloud is a pair of gloves that can recognize hand gestures that correspond to words and phrases in American Sign Language. Each glove contains sensors that record hand position and movement and send data wirelessly via Bluetooth to a central computer. The computer looks at the gesture data through various sequential statistical regressions, similar to a neural network. If the data match a gesture, then the associated word or phrase is spoken through a speaker.
