Marionnect 2.0 was inspired by a project called “Virtual to Physical Puppet” created by former Electronic Lunch members Teresa Dennis, Jason Prasad, and Mathew Schwartz. Kinect and Arduino technologies are used to make a small puppet mimic the motions of a human.

Six servos! Currently updating at 2 Hz after changing the command array from a 56 character string to a 10 byte array. Servos permitting we can probably get this thing updating at at least 20 Hz…
