Cory Einbinder: The amazing “Boy with a Big Head” Projection Puppet

Boy with a big head is a puppet designed and created by Cory Einbinder for the new production “Service Road”. The electronic system was created in conjunction with the New York City College of Technology Spring 2012 props crew. The concept was for the puppeteer Cor Einbinder to operate the puppet from behind while a camera is capturing Corys face in real time, and then projecting the image inside the puppet creating the puppet life like face. A short video taped at the end of the semester demonstrates the proof of concept. The video is on youtube. Cory will be demonstrating the puppet at Makerfaire in the fall of 2012.
