Humanoid Robot Controlled By The Kinect!

Anyone who follows us for news regularly is well aware of our love for robots, more specifically humanoid robots. Well today someone sent us a video of an extra cool robot, it’s a humanoid robot controlled by Microsoft’s Kinect.

Essentially it tracks a person stands who stands in front of the Kinect sensor, which is connected to a computer via usb, the computer I assume runs as the middle man and converts movements as directions sent to the robot on what to do (which is why there is a slight lag time, but still impressive since that lag time is very small).

If you haven’t checked out the video yet, make sure you do that, it’s much more impressive than you might think!
