Theo Watson and Emily Gobeille, who run the creative studio Design I/O, developed this interactive puppet prototype with an Xbox Kinect hack. Using its open source drivers and a 3D depth camera for tracking, they were able to create an animated digital bird whose movement is controlled by hand motions. The bird has a variety of different postures and can actually move its beak and caw.
