Here is another great Kinect robot courtesy of the community and the recent SDK! The Kinect RoboSapien brings the SDK’s features to robot control and the accuracy of the robotic movements is truly amazing! This video by Jimmy Engström displays this motion controlled robot and the features of the SDK that makes robot controlling even better! In the video, you can see how the robot responds to the gestures of the user via the laptop screen. The robot is able to mimic the user’s movements with such surprising similarity that it can only be possible through the programmer’s ingenuity and also the Kinect Official SDK. If robots continue to show this promise, then we’re pretty sure that the next generation of human progression will be through the foundation of a strong robotic force.
