MotionSavvy Leap Motion-equipped tablet case for interpreting ASL

MotionSavvy has released a beta version of a Leap Motion-equipped tablet case that can interpret American Sign Language. Using gesture recognition, MotionSavvy-interpreted ASL is spoken out loud, with the aim of reducing communication barriers between hearing and deaf communities. Users can sign in front of the tablet to generate audio dialogue, and hearing participants can speak near the tablet to generate a text version on the tablet screen. Those interested in trying out the preliminary versions of MotionSavvy can sign up online for more information.

Noisli background noise generating app released

Noisli, a new background audio service, is now offering a variety of audio environments that are intended to improve productivity. Featuring sounds ranging from rain to wind to a social cafe, Noisli's interface is minimal, and available in the form of an iOS app and a web platform. Users can create and save their own sound combinations, and Noisli's built-in timer features a fade-out function suitable for when listening to environmental audio as one is falling asleep. Currently priced at $1 for iOS devices on iTunes, users can also access the service via its web platform for free.
