ASL Kinect Mod Created Thanks To French Programmers


Posted May 19, 2011 - By Sophie Prell

Kinect hacks and unofficial mods from the Xbox community are so last year. What's really cool these days is programmers from France using an open source Kinect and a neural network to read and translate American Sign Language.

At this point, it only recognizes the ASL signs for "hello" and "sorry," but the programmers say the coding process for other words is complete, and all that remains is motion capture of the associated gestures.

I think it's pretty cool, seeing video game technology taken to be used as something useful. It's particularly nice to see the handicapped audience recognized and not ignored. How about you? Does this sort of programming excite you, or would you rather Kinect stay focused as a tool for gaming?
