It just takes finger spelling movements and displays them as letters.
So it lets you spell out words.      It doesn't detect or translate ASL.


Could be very nifty as a keyboardless keyboard though for those who know
finger-spelling and can communicate well by spelling out words.

Could also be used for data entry.

A New York Times article about a new device that translates ASL into
text.  It's not in production yet (a high school kid invented it), but
sounds really cool.


Here's the article.  Requires a free subscription to NYT online.
