Halloween Themed Digital Puppets Available To Download
Now this is a pretty cool use of digital puppetry and something fun for Halloween; a company called ImaginEERIEing sells some basic computer programs that display a digital puppet on a Windows of Mac computer that can be controlled using a keyboard or microphone. It's also possible to playback a prerecorded performance too. It looks especially effective when the computer screen is hidden in a facade like it is in the video above.
There are currently three different characters available. The "Magic Mirror" character seen in the video can be downloaded for free; there's also a skull and a talking pumpkin available for $15 US each.
