Virtual impersonation using 3d interactive glove puppets – Emil Polyak, Siggraph Asia 2012

“This project was presented at Siggraph Asia 2012. I designed and created interactive gloves to mimic the impersonation of a costumed human hand and to tell stories on a virtual 3D stage. The digital puppet inherits the bio-mechanical constraints of the puppeteer’s hand and applies them in posing and facial expressions during the performance. For this experiment I developed an interactive hardware and software solution using open source technology.”
