    Thought you'd be interested in this pretty cool video of this presentation....

    Here's the synopsis...

    Vcom3D and the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center of Gallaudet University located in Washington D.C. are researching and developing a proof-of-concept system for creating and delivering animated stories using the full range of facial expressions and body language of American Sign Language, as well as manual signs to aid the reading comprehension of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.

    The proof-of-concept, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), includes a video of the story, titled "The Forest", which was signed in American Sign Language by Jason Stewart, a teacher at the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES).

    Any opinions, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of NSF.

    And the video....Note how fluid the movements are and the facial expressions that associates with it. Hope everyone else enjoys this video demonstration as well....
