No need to hire a photographer when you have this Kinect-powered robot to help you capture the moments! The Kinect Party Photographer is an automated picture taker which utilizes the Kinect and a DSLR camera to detect users inside a party and capture a solo or group shot. This video by msrobotics showcases this cunning use of the Kinect and the prospect of having a robot to capture pictures, making it possible to have no moment missed. In the video, the robot roams around the area, detecting people through the Kinect camera. The laptop processes these information and when the Kinect detects the faces of the people posing, it stops and then gears the DSLR to take the pictures of the people. Leave no secrets on your party with the Kinect Party Photographer!
