What better way to create buzz and publicity than to have your lead character be an interactive puppet! The Kinect Interactive Puppet for a Musical is a publicity stint that lets users control a puppet in order to know more about the said production. This program by Andre Maia showcases this very interesting program and how passersby can be converted into potential and actual customers after trying this Kinect hack. In the video, the puppet character is displayed and users who stand in front of the display can gain control of the puppet. They can have fun with the virtual character or access more information but gesturing towards the hovering notes. The fusion of technology and art never fails!
