Assistive Technology Daily always digs up great AT – Here is another one of their awesome finds – technology that translates sign language into audible speech! Sometimes there are assistive technology that just make you tear up – in a good way, for the awesome potential it can offer individuals with disabilities. This was one of those that made me tear – so incredible – the UNI, a sign language recognition tablet and text to speech!

Oh my, think of the possibilities – what an incredible tool developed by Ryan Campbell at Leap Motion. Watch this video and read the interview and you’ll want to help fund the IndieGoGo campaign for UNI production –

And then think of the possibilities!
