A fun learning app for sign language, guided by a 3D avatar
The application Sign 360 shows 3D avatars signing in LSF on centre stage with a level of high fidelity and fluidity in their gestures. This result is the achievement of 8 years of R&D from MocapLab's Engineering Lab on full motion capture, including body, fingers, facial and eyes, areas of movement that are essential for the restitution of the finesse of sign language.
The application is based on a 3D innovative player developed specifically to allow visualisation in 3D and to increase the understanding and memorisation of the subtle movements involved in sign language. This 3D player allows the possibility to navigate around the avatar, and particularly to experiment with a subjective view. It can offer various effects that focus attention on the gesture itself and its components.
This application aims to enhance the learning methods of movement. Beyond the field of sign language, the concept of the application is adaptable for any kind of movement learning (taï-chi, dance, professional gestures...).

The prototype was financed by the Ile de France Regional Council, will be presented for the first time at the Futur En Seine 2016 Festival ( 9 - 12 juin, http://www.futur-en-seine.paris/). The event is also open to the general public, so please stop by and try it out for yourselves!
We would like to especially thank Les Clés de demain for having selected us among their top 5 prototypes to see at the event! See the article below for more info:
