A quick installation prototype by Theo Watson and Emily Emily Gobeille (design-io.com) with the libfreenect Kinect drivers and ofxKinect (openFrameworks addon). The system is doing skeleton tracking on the arm and determining where the shoulder, elbow, and wrist is, using it to control the movement and posture of the giant bird!
