Xbox Kinect hack creates cool shadow puppet~

Interactive Puppet Prototype with Xbox Kinect from Theo Watson on Vimeo.

This animated bird is the project of Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson, using an Xbox Kinect connceted to a laptop using the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect. The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant funky bird!
"Speed project - made in a day using openFrameworks and libFreenect.
Concept and Production by Design I/O
