Glove Translates Tactile Sign Language to Help Persons Who Are Deaf and Blind Communicate

Engineers at Germany’s Design Research Lab created the Mobile Lorm Glove to help people who are both deaf and blind communicate with other people via mobile technology.

The nodes on the glove are pressure sensors used to translate Lorm, a tactile sign language, into text or speech. The glove also does reverse translation, with vibrating motors that deliver feedback patterns according to Lorm’s method of assigning letters to different parts of the palm.
