CES 2018 preview: SignAll, an automated sign language translator

SignAll Translates Sign Language Automatically, See It At CES 2018.  (Nibletz, 12/12/2017)
Currently in the prototype stage SignAll utilizes 3 webcams and a depth sensor to capture the signer. The depth sensor is placed at chest height and the cameras are placed around them, ensuring that every angle of the signing is captured. This allows the path, the shape of the hands and the gestures to be captured completely. A PC syncs up and processes these images in real time from each different angle. 
The PC uses a natural language processing module that is able to transform the signs into grammatically correct, fully formed sentences.
