Control An AR Drone With The Kinect

There has been a lot of cool development going on with the Microsoft Kinect, honestly I don’t even think Microsoft expected the Kinect to be used in these sort of ways. Well it turns out that the Zickel Engineering managed to convert a Parrot A.R. Drone controller into the kinect, which is amazing!

In general the idea behind is incredibly cool and seems like a lot of fun to control! The only downside to what I see though is that it doesn’t seem all that precise, but it’s a start.

Q4U: What other sorts of Kinect implementations do you think would be incredibly useful?
