An interactive window display that makes you question what is real and what is fake. Using a widely recognized cultural symbol for lying, my team of four created a marionette similar to Pinocchio as a news anchor with animated eyes, moving arms and head and a growing nose. Fabricated from pvc pipes, CNC milled wood, canvas, string, foam board, foam core, velcro, and lots of paint. Eyes were animated using a Raspberry Pi and two small lcd’s. Arduino used for arms motor, led lights on logo, lazy susan motor (for head movement) and stepper motor (the nose).
