Luminous Language / For the disabled

Luminous Language
Luminous Language

Deaf-and-dumb people use finger language to communicate with others. But if in the dark, they couldn’t see the move of the hands, so the finger language could not work.

“Luminous Sign language” Glove is designed to make finger language visible in the dark. It is a fitted grove made by fluorescent fabric. Therefore, deaf-and-dumb people who wear it could see each other’s hands and the communication could be achieved as usual.

Small change brings magnificent convenience to the disabled people. They have the rights to live the same life as normal people.
