The Lorm hand touch alphabet allows people to communicate with someone who is both deaf and blind by using tactile signing. The system assigns different letters to different places on the hand, and someone touches the different places on the hand to spell out messages.
Now, Germany’s Design Research Lab has created a glove fitted with textile pressure sensors all over the palm. This allows the deaf/blind to punch out their own message right on their palms and send them via SMS. Watch and be amazed.
