Claymation Studio: Kinecting Life to Objects

Placeholder Show Content


Team Microsoft was presented with the challenge to develop a product that would allow people to creatively express their ideas with their bodies. After observing children express their creativity, Team Microsoft determined that Claymation was a great medium for people to explore their creativity. The team developed KinectMation!, a tool which gives users the ability to use their bodies to translate movement to scanned objects. KinectMation! also assists with story construction and development so that users can develop a story alongside their character’s movements.
