quadSquad wins Microsoft Imagine Cup with EnableTalk

SIGNS OF LIFE: Time to bust out the bandura. Ukrainian student tech team, quadSquad, took home first place in this year's Microsoft Imagine Cup with EnableTalk, which uses sensory gloves and a smartphone app to allow speech-impaired people to transform sign language into speech.
