This project started by using 123D Catch, a new Adobe software, to get a 3D scan of my whole body. I cleaned up the scan and manipulated it to work with 123D Make. Using this program, I sliced the model into the proper layers and size for laser cutting. Once I finished laser cutting, I integrated the electronics, including a motion sensor, and Arduino to make the head turn. I created two functions, an automatic tracking function and a manually controlled function through Max MSP. In a way this is a modern day puppet. 


Arduino Code here. Instuctable here.
