Language Extension Glove

Graduation Thesis 2010

Hand-tech is a concept for a technological device wearable like a glove, able to convert iconic gestures into concrete actions.


Special sensors woven in the fabric are capable to detect micro movements of your hands. Together with tiny cameras, projectors and speakers your hands become the interface to activate a series of specific functions.

Shoot photos and videos by simply framing the subject with your hands, project things by pointing on a wall, show holograms by opening your fist, measure objects with your fingers, exchange datas by shaking hands, bring your hand to the ear to make a call.

Sign language of deaf-mute can be translated into sounds, and so on.

Imaging your hands to become the ultimate controlling device, a tool to expand your communication power of sign language!
