Emily Gobeille and Theo Watson’s Kinect-driven puppet show:

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!

    What’s the best process. Any recommendations?
