Engaging your team with what they need to know - when and where they need to know it

A Sign of the Times

A Sign of the Times

I remember in the late 80′s, looking forward to the upcoming release of a new movie called ‘The Wizard’. The film was essentially a ninety minute commercial for a new product being released for Nintendo called ‘The Power Glove’.  As it turned out, the glove wielded very little power and was just an over-hyped controller that never really took off.

Well, now it is 2012, and a new technological ‘power glove’ has been created for a whole different reason. As explained on thenextweb.com:

Three developers, Oleg Imanilov, Zvika Markfield, and Tomer Daniel, have come up with a glove that interprets sign language and turns it into text using a custom Android app.

This “text glove” is still in it’s development stages and is hoping to gather support in the upcoming year.  It is technological creations, such as this, that make for a better world.  Communication is a right that we all deserve to have and these technologies are helping to pave the way to a brighter future.

These three developers may not be wizards, but what they are creating is certainly magic.
