Caption

Wearable computing. Researcher Thad Starner does a sign language movement whilst dressed in wearable computing devices which act like an oral speech recognition system. The camera in his hat sends images of his hand movements to a portable compu- ter. It interprets the movements & translates them into words which are played through a speaker or stored in a text document. An image of the text document can be projected onto the glass of his MicroOptical spectacles so that he can check that the words are correct. Starner is a co-founder of the "wearable computer" project at the Massachu- setts Institute of Technology, USA, which aims to make computers much easier and practical to use.
