The sock-on-the-hand trick doesn’t impress too many kids these days, but this Xbox Kinect Puppet is sure to turn even the heads of even the toughest tyke crowd.

Theo Watson has managed to work with the Microsoft program using openFrameworks and libFreenect to develop the means for his computer webcam to track and react to movement. By creating the conditions for the development of a skeletonization code, Watson uses his laptop to map corresponding points that breathe life into his stirring and squawking Xbox Kinect Puppet bird.
