Learn to Sign in Video

sign languageKrown Manufacturing, a maker of specialty devices for people with poor hearing, was displaying this device at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The simple machine has videos of all 4,500 words of the US sign language that can be quickly played back for reference. Krown predicts it will go on sale by the middle of the year.

This story and pic came from Medgadget. A quick browse of the Krown Manufacturing website didn’t give any more details on the machine. The picture of this isn’t great and, to be honest, the machine looks a bit tacky – the blue base and grey keyboard looks like something from an 80’s movie. Hopefully it looks better in the flesh.

Given the availability of broadband nowadays and the rise of video streaming over the net – will people need this?
