The CNUCE Institute was founded in 1965 as Computing Center for the University of Pisa; later it was attached to the National Council of Research (C.N.R.) of Italy and at the moment it has a staff of about 80 active in the laboratories of logic programming, computer network, satellite flight control, data bases, parallel computing, structural engineering, remote sensing, computer graphics and computer music.The activities at the cART Lab mainly consist of Applied Research, Education, Production. The keywords characterising the activity of the Lab are man-machine interaction and real-time gesture control. Infrared beams and video captured image processing technologies have been taken into consideration in order to design and carry out original gesture interfaces for remote sensing (i.e. without mechanical and/or electrical links) moving objects handled by performers or direct gesture of the human body. Many interactive multimedia operas have been produced and presented in various important events at national and international levels.

At the cART Lab of CNUCE, Leonello Tarabella focused his attention for designing and developing original new man-machine interfaces taking into consideration sensors and technologies typically used in robotics: infra-red beams and real time analysis of video captured images. The basic idea consists of remote sensing, (i.e. without mechanical and/or electrical links) moving objects handled by performers and/or remote sensing gesture of the human body.

Make sure to check:

The TwinTowers device, based on the infrared technology, detects height and angular positions of the hands.

The Imaginary Piano where the hands of a pianist play in the air with no real keyboard;

The PAGe (Painting by Aerial Gesture) system where the hands of a performer paint in the air images projected onto a large video screen.

P.S.
Many years ago I used to play with Leonello's brother, Leonardo, a guitarist Shocked
