Robotic arm that translates words in signs

A robotic hand that can translate words into sign language gestures for deaf people has been created by scientists.

Named Project Aslan, the 3D-printed hand costs as little as £400 ($560) to make and interprets both written text and spoken words.

The device communicates through 'fingerspelling', a type of sign language where words are spelled out letter-by-letter through separate gestures on a single hand.

The robot, which will be ready in five years, could one day be carried around in a rucksack, scientists say.

It could help some of the 70 million worldwide who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate with people who don't know sign language.
