Video: Enchanted puppets reenact Napoleon Dynamite

Napoleon Dynamite was a 2004 low-budget American comedy that centered around a socially awkward high school student from Preston, Idaho, who lived with his older brother Kip and their grandmother, and navigated through life with his best friend Pedro. Napoleon daydreamed his way through school, doodling ligers (they’re pretty much his favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic) and fantasy creatures, while reluctantly dealing with the various bullies who torment him.


Well, fans of the flick will certainly enjoy what the team at Bare Conductive recently devised using their ATmega32U4 based Touch Board and some conductive thread. Think 2005 soundboards, only better…

The project reenacts a memorable part of the film, using several audio clips from the scene, which were separated into a dialogue. Each line of the dialogue was connected to a separate electrode on the Touch Board via conductive thread.

Like the film? Then, you’ll love this step-by-step tutorial from the Bare Conductive crew.
