Subject: [Puptcrit] Digital Puppetry



There's been some discussion on the list about live digital puppetree,
I just saw some information on Animata, an opensource, live animation program

http://animata.kibu.hu/

It seems to be open to input from lot's of types of sensors.

Haven't played with it yet, but it's a free download and maybe worth looking into.

I guarantee they could post some reasons I'm no fun to tour with, and they'd be right. (For one thing, I never got used to the van and trailer, that I was a pretty scary driver is an understatement)
