No need remote controls when you can control your toy car with gestures alone! The Kinect Controlled Robot Car is a start-up hack by one the youngest hackers in our Kinect community! This video by William showcases how one can control a robot car just by using the Kinect and sheer gesture. In the video, the user is able to power and direct the robot car by moving their arm and their hand. The program is able to detect a finger as the specific point of interest. From forward to reverse and even steering, the user is able to accurately manipulate the car. The Kinect’s depth sensing feature also allows this control to happen, giving more diversity to the directions this car can go. It is a pleasure to see the younger generation striking an interest with the Kinect!
