Hearing-impaired football players could benefit from a prototype helmet designed by researchers from Gallaudet University and AT&T that provides visual displays of plays.
The plays are transmitted over 5G to be displayed on a nearly transparent screen in the helmet at the push of a tablet button on the sideline.
The technology debuted last month in Gallaudet quarterback Brandon Washington's helmet during the team's first win of the season.
The helmet is the latest example of how the private school has been an incubator for technology for the deaf.
Gallaudet was responsible for the first Dictionary of American Sign Language, and pioneered the use of video phones on campus, as well as the development of translation and ASL recognition applications.
