Push Puppet Toy is a computer-controlled puppet that stands to attention when a friend joins an IRC channel, and collapses when he leaves.

Push Puppet Toy project was inspired by the Availabot from Schulze and Webb (http://schulzeandwebb.com/2006/availabot/). The Availabot is a puppet guy that rises to its feet when a friend comes online on IM, and falls over when the friend disappears. It's a cool little toy, but it has 3 shortcomings:

It doesn't exist yet
It apparently won't work in Linux
The puppet guy looks menacing, although I understand it will be customizable

But the Availabot is obviously only a push puppet with a servo. So it's easy to make a similar device with a push puppet of your liking.

What's New in This Release:

A Pidgin version of the Gaim plugin was added.
