Impressed by the demos of the speech-recognition tech Microsoft will be including with its Kinect motion-control camera system later this year?

You ain't seen nothing yet.

According to recently-released patent filings, the Kinect system
doesn't stop at spoken words: it'll also recognize American Sign
Language, allowing users to input letters, words, or phrases solely
with hand gestures.

ASL support tops off what's already an impressive feature set for
Kinect. Aside from being a motion-based control system for Wii-style
video games, Microsoft's new camera-based hardware is able to recognize
different players by voice or facial features, conduct video chat
sessions, and track up to six humans at once. It'll go on sale November
4, costing $149.99.

And even if you don't speak ASL, we're guessing it won't be long
before a Rosetta Stone-style language learning "game" comes along to
teach you. Can you think of a more intuitive way to learn ASL? We can't.
