MotionSavvy, the San Francisco startup working on tech to help the deaf communicate, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to commercialize its first product, UNI. The UNI app works with Leap Motion technology to translate each hand sign from American sign language and translates it into audible words on a tablet.
We first wrote about the tech behind MotionSavvy when it launched out of the Leap AXLR8R program back in June. The team at MotionSavvy now has a rough working prototype of UNI. It currently works with Dell Pro 8 tablet, which is housed within the UNI case and the Leap Motion controller. MotionSavvy hopes to raise a total of $40,000 on Indiegogo to help with manufacturing and to bring the UNI into final production.
TechCrunch met up with the all deaf founding team behind MotionSavvy to get an idea of just how UNI works. Check it out:
