The Puppet Master

The puppet master is a game that creates a link between the people in a public space and a user behind a computer.
It works pretty similar to the Mechanical Turk, one of the first “automatas” ever created. It gives the illusion of a intelligent machine that interacts with the people which is in reality a person behind manipulating the computer.
The software provides lots of interaction modes to play with the people, funny, engaging and unlimited in possibilities.

This is the toolset created in order to interact
