puppet-controller

"the marionettes" project for the eyebeam reception for the shanghai media art fair symposium in new york

 

this is the controller. It allows direct control over the limbs as well as "walking" and even turning, which is a pleasant surprise resulting from the walking algortihm and some experimentation by the users...

 

It uses two gametrak devices (with a cheap ikea chair over it) and the wood has to be tweaked a bit. Thanks to Jason and Hannah who came up with that wonderful magnetic idea, you can detach the upper part for the arms and move them seperately!
