Sign Wave is a gestural computer interface designed to serve those whose physical limitations are incompatible with the traditional keyboard-and-mouse setup. Because it uses the Kinect, this is an affordable solution when compared to many assistive technology products that are currently on the market.
Originally designed for one patient,
whose neurological disorder has left him
with very limited motor skills and almost
no vision, the challenge was to create something that could give him more autonomy
in his life; specifically, the ability to listen to music, navigate the internet, and compose emails. Previously, he has not been able to perform these tasks without the help of an aide.
