We designed holographic hands to be as elegant as possible but also as realistic as possible to make the experience more natural.
With an average processing time of 20ms, our app is build on a real time basis to display the coding hand right in time!
We wrote our own algorithm to translate phonemes into Cued Speech handshapes and positions.
We implemented all french phonemes manually to be sure the right pronunciation will be recognised by the app and minimize the error rate.
Kophosight originally started as a school project during our 4th year at ECE Paris Engineering School.
The team decided to promote the Kophosight project by participating at the Défi H. It is a competition organized by Sogeti and dedicated to disability. During the year, teams of engineering students must find a partnership with an association and got coached in order to produce the best project.
We met several times at INJS with Mr. Brossier, that way we managed to clearly specify the need and start to work effectively on the app. Since those meetups, INJS became an essential partner for Kophosight.
Thanks to the partnership between Sogeti and Microsoft, we managed to meet Mr. Trotin at Microsoft France. He was very enthousiast about the project and offered us help to code and test our app on HoloLens headsets.
As our project growed bigger and bigger, Sogeti gave us an opportunity to "incubate" our project at Sogeti's Innovation Studio : Studio Kamino. This huge opportunity boosted the project development.
Kophosight was selected to participate at the Microsoft Developer Awards in may 2017. The project won in the Ninja Cat Of The Year category and has been invited to take part at the MS Build in Seattle.
The project won the "Technologic Innovation Prize" of the 2017 edition of the Défi H at the BPI Hub in Paris.
During two days Kophosight was present at the Crédit Agricole SQY PARK to show it's application and perform demonstrations on the Capgemini's exhibition stand.
