About Us

Motion Light Lab (ML2) is an award-winning research and development lab at Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C. We are a part of the Visual Language and Visual Learning Center (VL2). We engage in a wide range of research-driven projects, creative R&D, including the development and distribution of bilingual storybook apps, the provision of training to support literacy development for deaf children, and the creation of advanced 3D avatars with sign language through motion capture technology. Our efforts intersect creative literature and digital technology that integrate with VL2 science to create new knowledge, and benefit society.

Find us on the first floor of the Sorenson Language and Communication Center building at Gallaudet University. We offer students rich opportunities for training in computational and digital media innovation, and we regularly look for volunteers for research studies.

ML2 Training

We are seeking partnerships with Deaf schools and Deaf programs to create Deaf-centered storybook apps. Email us at motionlightlab@gallaudet.edu for more information.
