Star wars stormtropers

Disney commissioned us to prepare a window display for the launch of their new Star Wars movie “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” in December 2015.

Using Kinect technology we managed to recreate one of the favorite characters from the Saga: the Stormtroopers.

The Kinect would detect the users who walked past the window display and would place them in determined coordinates through a software. In turn, this information would travel to several Arduinos that moved eight engines places on the heads of the Stromtroopers.

This resulted in the Stormtrooper’s gazes’ following passersby’s when walking next to the window display.
