Smart Nails

Our life becomes much easier with smart devices with AI. I just can say ‘Alexa, turn off the living room light’ to turn off the living room light. Todays’ most smart devices work with our voice and it makes a barrier for people who are using sign language to join the world of smart devices. How can they control smart devices without their voice?
The solution to the problem is Smart Nail, a device that you can attach on your nails. It lets people to use sign language, their main communication tool, to control smart devices. As you do sign language it can understand your message and send it to a smart device and perform your order.
