A fully customized 3d Skeleton (designed to be adapted to any puppet) was inserted into a teddy bear skin. This setup includes servos and lights (teddy cheeks) controlled by a C# application using a simplistic scripting language, where one of the variables are the inputs of the skeleton and face recognition parameters provided by a Microsoft Kinect v1. Firmata is used for the hardware communication.
