The authors developed a unique the Internet of Skills device ‘the Art Glove’ for piano artists augmented with a significant number of different types of sensors allowing tracking and tracing movement of every single finger phalange, finger and wrist as a whole. Then the measurements are transferred wirelessly to the Internet and stored in a cloud in a digital form. ‘The Art Glove’ helps to save and preserve the greatest pianists’ heritage, and to teach beginners. But is saving a soul, ‘dusha’, an important part of artistic performance, in the Internet of Skills? What then is the identity of an artist connected with an Art Glove? Implementation of the Internet of Skills in music and other creative sectors poses significant ethical questions.
