Cute project via How To Get What You Want.
The following sockpuppets are made as examples for the Soft Sensors for Soft Bodies workshop at the 2015 NODE Festival in Frankfurt, Germany. The plan is to hook up the sensors on these sockpuppets to the VVVV software via an arduino running Firmata. Then we can map the sensor data to puppeteer virtual puppets or make silly noises.
The following step-by-step instructions explain how each of these four sock puppets were made.
Armin the Anxious Animal
Armin is a augmented sockpuppet with textile sensors integrated in his mouth. A three-way contact switch can tell what facial expression Armin is making, and an analog pressure sensor can tell how hard he is squeezing his nose when his mouth is clenched tight.
