New Avatar for Laughter Tree

I'm keeping working in  the creation of a magnetic mapping with magnetic pictures to create an avatar in real time with the kids. With the help of id. recognition through a library the kinect will be able to recognize any of the picture (body parts) kids magnet on the mapping patters (a person).
Children will be able to create an avatar with two heads, three legs, five feet, etc, and move it in Laughter Tree Game. In doing so I am exploring the body image that children with sickness have of themselves and also the way children interact with body image. I think it can be quite interesting. We will use 'Blockman' as a figure to track movement.
