Smart wristband in China translates sign language into text, voice, images


Xinhua, January 26, 2021


An intelligent wristband capable of translating sign language into text, voice and images has debuted in northeast China's Liaoning Province.

The watch-sized wristband captures the arm movements of hearing-impaired individuals by recognizing the surface electromyography (EMG) of the human body. It combines its readings with machine learning algorithms to translate gestures into voice, text and images.

The device was invented by a team of students at Northeastern University in Liaoning. Team member Zeng Zhen said the device is intended to help hearing-impaired people "find their own voices" and better communicate with others.
