This paper presents an automatic algorithm for static hand gesture recognition relying on both depth and intensity information provided by a time-of-flight (ToF) camera. The combined depth and intensity information facilitates the segmentation process, even in the presence of a cluttered background (2 misses out of 450 images). Gesture classification is(More)
An autoionization of germanium dichloride/dioxane complex with an imino-N-heterocyclic carbene ligand (L) afforded a novel germyliumylidene ion, [(L)GeCl](+)[GeCl3](-), which was fully characterized. Reduction of the germyliumylidene ion with potassium graphite produced a cyclic species [(L)Ge], which can be viewed as both a Ge(0) species and a mesoionic(More)
The reaction of germylone (L)Ge (1) [L = 3-Ad-1-{C((t)Bu) = N(Mes)}C3H4N2] with 1 equivalent of MeOTf afforded a germyliumylidene ion [(L)GeMe](+)OTf(-) (2), while reactions with M(CO)5(thf) (M = Cr, Mo, W) gave the corresponding germylone-metal complexes [(L)Ge]M(CO)5 (3-5). The former possesses a pyramidal Ge center, whereas the latter display a planar(More)
An isolable 1,4,2-diazaborole derivative was synthesized and structurally characterized. X-ray diffraction analysis and computational studies revealed a delocalization of 6π-electrons over the BC2N2 five-membered ring, which thus indicates the aromatic property. The reactivity toward electrophiles such as MeOTf and selectfluor was also investigated.
A new anionic heteroleptic Ir(III)-dithiolate complex Ir(ppy)2(benzene-1,2-dithiolate) (ppy = 2-phenylpyridine, [IrSS](-)) undergoes very fast air oxidation to form a monosulfinate complex [IrSSO2](-), which can be further dioxygenated by O2 or H2O2 to give a disulfinate complex [IrSO2SO2](-), which has been characterized by X-ray crystallography. The(More)
