CSUN 2014 talk by Professor Jonathan Hassell describing how Hassell Inclusion, Gamelab UK, and Reflex Arc are using Natural User Interface technologies like Microsoft Kinect to create a whole new generation of assistive technologies based around the movements, gestures and signs different groups of disabled people make.
Two projects are described:
Nepalese Necklace movement games for blind and partially-sighted children that encourage blind and partially-sighted children to engage more readily with their early mobility training through making the body- and spatial-awareness exercises they have to perform the controls for motivational 3D audio-games;
uKinect sign language eLearning games to help people who use sign language to more easily transition into employment by enabling them to learn workplace-specific sign vocabularies using instructive video and our innovative Kinect sign-language recognition system.
