More XBox Kinect Hacks: Interactive Puppet Prototype

Although the 3D overlay and manipulations have a bit more wow factor, this early demo is still nifty. The potential of this is amazing.

A quick installation prototype Emily and I hooked up with 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!
