Professor Brian Lovell of the University of Queensland, Australia, who's also Chief Technical Officer at Imagus Technology, is a well-known figure in the fields of fields of computer vision and pattern recognition. Lovell is also a long-time advisor to (and advocate of) the Embedded Vision Alliance.

Kudos to Gizmodo for the heads-up on a just-published, very informative video by Computerphile, shown above. It captures an interview with several researchers from Nottingham Trent University's Interactive Systems Research Group in the United Kingdom. With clinical medical applications (such as use by stroke victims) in mind, they've developed a prototype gesture interface system that leverages a "glove", a Wiimote, and several open-source and free software packages.

Earlier this month, I passed along word of the teardown of the Leap Motion gesture interface peripheral, one of the better-known recent embedded vision examples by virtue of its consumer electronics focus and consequent extensive potential-customer interest and press coverage.
