Kinect hacked for gesture-controlled robot

Posted on Saturday, November 27 2010 @ 11:26:57 CET by

TweakTown found another cool Kinect hack:
The gang over at Willow Garage have offered up a hack that uses Kinect to control one of its PR2 robots that are used for all sorts of research and are crazy expensive. The control system looks really intuitive and slick even if it is in an early form. One cool thing the company is working on is using a pair of the Kinects in one system.

This would allow the remote sensing of the front and back of the robot controller. That would certainly make it easier for robotic line dancing. I'm not sure what the real use for that would be, but it is cool. I wonder if Microsoft's designers had any idea how hacked the Kinect would be when they were designing it.
