It’s important for you to know that the research, business plans, prototypes, and other types of exhibits one will experience during Imagine RIT, do not fade away after our one day festival, but rather they live on as RIT students, faculty and staff continue to develop and refine their work.
MotionSavvy is one such exhibit – an application that will translate a hand shape into a text letter of the alphabet in sign language.
Other great press placements for MotionSavvy may be found in:
The RIT/NTID students involved include: Ryan Hait-Campbell, Alex Opalka, Wade Kellard, Jordan Stemper, Daniel Mooney, Claire Bernard, and Robert Dooling. In 2013, the team was accepted in and completed RIT’s Summer Start-Up course for new businesses at RIT’s Saunders College of Business and the Simone Center for Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This was followed by an award of $25,000 and acceptance into Leap Motion’s LEAP AXLR8R in San Francisco to help further their work. MotionSavvy has also been developed as part of RIT’s research in Effective Access Technology.
