Latest Invention: Tech That Converts Lip Motion Into Voice


If you like this invention you can vote for it.One of the latest inventions presented at the CeBIT (Centrum der Büro- und Informationstechnik; German for "Centre of Office and Information technology"), which is the largest computer exposition in the world is dubbed "silent sounds." The technology converts lip motion into a computer-generated voice for the person on the other end of the phone.

It is worth mentioning that "silent sounds" tech was developed by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). This latest invention makes use of electromyography, monitoring small muscular motions that take place when a person speaks, transforming them into electrical pulses which are afterwards converted into speech.

According to its developers, the invention gives way to a lot of different application that can help people who lost their voice or allow users to inform confidential data via the cell phone without using their voice.

In addition, this latest invention can help you instantly translate words into another language, due to the fact that electrical pulses are universal. The users can convert these pulses into one of the languages currently supported by the technology: English, French and German. At the same time translation could be a problem for such languages as Chinese, in which one word could have a lot of meanings, depending on the tone used.

At this time, engineers managed to achieve 99 percent accuracy for their latest invention, which means that the person on the other end of the phone will get one word out of 100 wrong, said explained Michael Wand, from the KIT.
