Ever wanted to communicate with a cuddly toy?
This interactive bear character was designed for Tokyo Joshi Project’s WHY DON’T YOU PINK exhibition in March 2011.
Just stand in front of the frame and strike a pose. The cute bear (“kuma”) will immediately start copying you and together you can play games to see if he can mirror all your postures. And not only movement, the bear will also speak to you (in Japanese) in real time via Twitter (@kumarionette).
This is the world’s first example of character signage that uses Microsoft’s Kinect sensory system with OpenNI body tracking to create a fun and interactive experience for lovers of cute things everywhere!
