A Japanese scientist, who also happens to be the creator of the BowLingual, a dog-human translator…, has managed to only re-create the voice of the Mona Lisa herself, but da Vinci as well.
… The way it works is that measurements are taken (in this case, determined via a photo of the painting) of the face as well as the subject?s height and hands. The skull is recreated and then the data is run through a program which determines the person?s vocal pitch. A similar method was used to determine da Vinci?s voice.
