Expanding Kinectosphere: augment your reality with puppets!

Interactive Puppet Prototype with Xbox Kinect

With games so lame they play themselves for you, the Kinect may not be the Wii killer Microsoft dreamed of. But its unfolding hackability is pretty exciting to behold. We’ve gone from rudimentary object tracking in RL and 3D imaging of the user’s environment to this performance-ready puppet—a quick and elegant implementation that only hints at hacks to come. Made by Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson at Design I/O.
