  1. 1. TOYTEMIC DANCING TOYTEMIC DANCING The intuitive method for guiding a virtual character by manipulating AN INTERFACE PUPPET Thanks to the inspiring impulse of Charlie Chaplin’s Table Ballet from The Gold Rush movieSlide 01 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  2. 2. WHAT IS IT? A virtual and/or robotic twin exactly replicates… …every gesture of the manipulated puppetSlide 02 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  3. 3. HOW DOES IT WORK? • No wires • No buttons • No cameras • No sensor pads Working prototype. The doll (remote control device) has nine articulations.Slide 03 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  4. 4. BASE TECHNOLOGY The technology supports detection of a coordinate position of the distant point of any moving part (limb, tail, head etc.) accurate within ± 1cm in real time. It’s a simple motion capture …without any external detector. A puppeteer instead of an actor.Slide 04 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  5. 5. RANGE OF APPLICATIONS Just tree examples… (from a number of applications) Poseable fashion doll Combined joystick Video-karaoke puppetSlide 05 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  6. 6. APPS: Example 1 Example 1. Fashion doll. A poseable figure serves as an input device for: • communication • virtual dancing • dressing-up • games • any kind of on-line activitySlide 06 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  7. 7. APPS: Example 2 Example 2. Combined joystick. For controlling a computer game fighter.Slide 07 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
  8. 8. APPS: Example 3 Example 3. Video-karaoke. A conventional plush toy completed with Toytemic sensor system would be ideal for this application. • Single player: soloist and corps de ballet (chorus) • Multi-player: home theatre • “Choreographer” option (record and playback)Slide 08 Interface Puppet / Patent pending
