Michelle Min wanted to make a puppet for her nephew that will remind him of her uncle, Michelle’s brother. She hacked a record-your-own-greeting card to put it in this puppet of her brother (he’s a cook, hence the hat). Now when Bosung plays with the puppet, it will remind him of his uncle, with actual voice clips! She later upgraded the puppet to use a four-sample audio recording module to give the puppet more of a repertoire.
