Educazione Multimediale Innovativa

EMI è un'organizzazione educativa non profit.

Scopo di EMI è produrre risorse innovative per facilitare  e potenziare l'apprendimento. La nostra Associazione è interessata a stabilire sinergie con realtà che abbiano gli stessi obiettivi, in un'ottica di collaborazione attiva nazionale e transnazionale.


Perché EMI? 

Mezzi e metodiche dell'edutainment possono arricchire e potenziare le pratiche didattiche.

EMI vuole operare una contaminazione tra arti e forme comunicative diverse per introdurle efficacemente nell'ambito dell'Istruzione.

ricerca e sperimentazione


La tecnica della cattura del movimento, in gergo motion capture, consiste nel registrare i movimenti del corpo, convertendoli in dati. Attraverso questi dati è possibile trasporre i movimenti registrati su un avatar ed animarlo.
La nostra associazione fa uso della real time motion capture, che permette il trasferimento in tempo reale del movimento corporeo sull'avatar.
Ci serviamo di sistemi inerziali per la cattura dei movimenti di tutto il corpo, comprese le mani, mentre per la cattura delle espressioni facciali ricorriamo a telecamere di profondità che traccino mappe dettagliate dei volti in 3D.

Why EMI?

Tools and methods of edutainment can enrich and enhance teaching practices.

EMI creates a meeting point among different arts and communicative forms, in order to effectively include them in the field of education

research and experimentation


The technique of motion capture consists in recording the movements of the body, trasforming them into data. Through these data it is possible to transpose the movements recorded on an 2D/3D avatar and animate it.
Our association uses real-time motion capture, which allows real-time transfer of body movement to the avatar.
To capture the movements of the whole body, including the hands, we use inertial systems, while for the capture of facial expressions we use depth cameras elaborating detailed maps of the faces in 3D

The language of animation offers an extraordinary opportunity to the world of education. Simple animations can now be realized in reduced times and costs compared to the past, through appropriate software and with the support of new computerized functions, such as real-time motion capture, a technology capable of facilitating the character animation process.

This first edition of the "Fundamentals of Educational Video Animation" training course was created with the ambition and aim of creating new areas of competence for teachers, of introducing innovative tools and approaches to the communication of knowledge in schools and brings with it the hope for an ever wider and more widespread involvement of teachers and pupils in dedicated workshops.
