Modern translators can provide ways for people to translate speech of one foreign language into another. We thought it would be cool if we could do this for sign language, specifically American Sign Language (ASL).

We were inspired by the Leap Motion and its new beta version that has added more precision than ever before. We set out to create and identify custom gestures using JavaScript that our web application could recognize and subsequently print to the screen. It's beautiful! Sendgrid provided us with their awesome API so that we could email people with the latest translated sentences. We are proud to say that Sign2Line is a solid example of how the Leap Motion could be used in order to translate ASL into text.
