With the hearing impaired in mind, Hannah Faesenkloet designed a glove to illuminate hand signals in dark and low-light settings. The device is able to sense movement through an accelerometer and lights up whenever the user moves his or her hands. While only worn on one side, two LEDs located on each finger and four around the wrist are bright enough to cast light on the user’s face and opposite hand for clarity.
Faesenkloet, an Aukland native, currently studies at the Victoria University of Wellington School of Design. Watch a video demonstration of TacitLanguage below.
