“Anfischer” turned his PowerBook into a digital marionette (aka puppet) by using its built-in motion sensor and custom software. Video demonstration after the jump.

This a digital marionette. the later model powerbooks are equipped with a motion sensor that can be accessed by software. i wrote a small processing application that reads out the sensor. The digital representation of the marionette reacts to the sensor output and can be controlled by moving the laptop
