PoV

About This Project

PoV is a prototype for a product allowing users to take control over a characterless puppet, making it an extension of their own body. Can we be present and active in two different parts of the world at the same time? The importance of points of view is long discussed by philosophers and film theorists, PoV provides our own point of view in long distance conversations.

Process

The prototype gives the users control over a 26″ manikin using their mobile device. Using the accelerometer and gyro sensors embedded in mobile devices, the users can move the manikin in space and watch a live feed showing them the space from its point of view.┬áThe manikin is fabricated with wood, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, a camera and motors.
