Our love-able, hopeless romantic robot has taken its first step to becoming a reality. Youtube user isurafelian recently uploaded this video of a Kinect robot that pretty much resembles the animated character, Wall-E. The video does not show any further function of the Kinect Wall-E, the resemblance is there and it might comfort or excite users to know that there are developers out there who are using the Kinect to make Wall-E, a reality. Further developments might see this Kinect robot pick up the trash and clean, move around with hands or even fall in love with a fellow robot. With the technological advancements we’ve seen with the Kinect, we’d say that anything is possible.
Here is a brief description of the Kinect Wall-E Robot:
This robot is built mainly from vex motors(8) & a micro-controller. NXT motors(3), sensors & micro-controller. Kinect for vision & All controlled by on board computer.
