Program which allows Kinect to read sign-language created

Some French programmers have used the open-source version of Kinect which allows the device to recognize American sign-language.

So far, it only recognizes the signs for “hello” and “sorry”,but more words are being added to the program’s vocabulary, and because the coding has already been completed, all they need to do is they record the gestures and words into the program.

Back in August 2010, a patent surfaced for Kinect which showed the device recognizing ASL, but Microsoft said Kinect would not support it at launch.
