Greetings, programs

To any Tumblrites who are deaf, hard of hearing, know people who are, or just enjoy cool tech, a start-up called MotionSavvy is working on technology that uses Leap Motion to recognize sign language and and outputs written or spoken English.  The project was started by a group of deaf students at RIT’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf (yay RIT!) who moved to San Francisco to develop the product with Leap.

The team has over 800 deaf beta testers, but they are looking for more.  They hope to have a product available to consumers by September of 2015.

For more information, check out this TechCrunch article and this video.
