Mimetik is a real-time motion capture gamified platform. We translate real movement through a single iPhone camera to an Augmented Puppet, building a versatile virtual space with many possibilities. Through mocap-driven gaming, metaverse scenography, interaction, and AR fashion, Mimetic extends digital literacy and the concept of augmented puppetry, merges performance and media arts, and makes the virtuality more immersive. This project was first designed and developed during the one-day HackHarvard event in October, 2022. It is currently being continued, with focus on gaming possibilities and identity diversification bridging movement and imagination.
