A byproduct of innovation and technology is that it makes once useful things obsolete. Laserdiscs, tape decks, AOL, Dreamcast and more have all been killed off with better technology. Could that happen to sign language? Some people think so.
It's not just your clumsy leg-kicks that Kinect will understand, with a newly-discovered patent showing that it's actually capable of understanding American Sign Language, or ASL. Is this another way to input text to the game? UPDATED.
The Sign Language Translator's name may be a tad misleading (it doesn't actually translate anything), but as a pocket ASL video dictionary, it's a neat enough idea.
