Shaduz is a 24 year-old computer engineering graduate and musician from Bologna, Italy. He's developed the 3DID wireless MIDI glove, with 5 bend sensors (I'm guessing that's fingers), 3 gyroscopes, 3 accelerometers and 18 hours of battery life. As he says: "The most exciting thing is that the cost of the actual prototype (the glove shown in the video) together with the wireless receiver is about 150 euros."
Here is his project page, and
here [8bm WMV] is a video of him playing live with it. Shaduz is reassuringly free of theatrical facial expressions, although all that air punching and fist clenching does give his performance a slightly martial air. In case Shaduz' website slows down, I've taken the liberty of mirroring the video here at the Internet Archive. (Thanks, Rick)
