Gal Sasson has put together an amazing puppet theater by combining art, music, theater, electronics, and computer programming. My mind is boggled by how far we have come from cardboard shoeboxes and sock puppets. I am guessing that Gal spent many hours designing, problem solving, iterating, and tinkering. Her passion and persistence have resulted in a truly spectacular product. Is there a way to measure her learning? Does it matter?

Gal Sasson from ITP entered this “Make a Play” video and project in Engadget’s Insert Coin: New Challengers competition. It gets my vote for its combination of craft and electronics to create fun and engaging puppets, simple box theater construction complete with a spooky backdrop and lighting effects, and of course that laser-etched wooden control box.
