    Glove Puppetry Cloud Theater Through a Virtual Reality Network



    Chinese glove puppetry is a traditional art with a long history and widely spread in the folk ever. This paper presents a collaborative work in multi-user virtual reality system for puppetry’s opera. According to our developed system, each user has a unique perspective on any shared virtual world and interaction through our virtual reality network. This system achieves human-computer interaction and realizes the interaction between people. In addition, it brings an entertaining experience to users and easy to operate for all ages. In order to cultural preservation, we can record a grandmaster’s puppet show performance in our system. Our research not only delivers a balance of art and technology in culture creativity, but also preserve folk art.
