Good Boy, Sammy

Angela Perrone

"Good Boy, Sammy" is an interactive hologram experience, where the user can interact with a holographic dog (holo-dog) and get him to do tricks on command.


“Good Boy, Sammy” comes to life through voice recognition programming (p5.js speech library), projection, archived footage from 2009, and a hologram screen. Sammy responds to commands including sit, down, give me 5, 5 dollars, yodel and speak. A user approaches the cage he/she can get close, give a command and experience Sammy reacting in real time. It feels like he is alive and in the space with you.

Step aside taxidermy, because holo-dogging is taking over.
