---- PROTOTYPE --------- PURPOSE: To design a prototype of a communication device that allows individuals who are deaf and blind who use Lorm, a tactile signing language, communicate with each other via mobile technology. The prototype called, Mobile Lorm Glove, relies on Lorm. The bottom side of the glove has pressure sensors which translate Lorm into visual or audible forms of communication, such as text messages or speech over a mobile phone. The glove allows its wearer to receive text messages thanks to tactile feedback patterns. The back of the glove also has vibration motors that translate messages into vibrations, and thereby the user can “read” a book in an entirely new way by “feeling” his or her way through a whole audiobook. The Mobile Lorm Glove was invented Tom Bieling, Ulrike Gollner and Gesche Joost, and it is still in the early stages of development, with the next phase targeting direct speech input and output.
