Human and Robot Kinect

Ever-since the release of Kinect for Xbox 360, a lot of software has been written to propel the device way beyond the realm of video games.  People have been able to hack to the Kinect to surf the web Minority Report style, play air guitar (with sound) and play a a giant floor piano (just like in the movie Big).

The latest and greatest Kinect hack is a real doozie!  Kinect Hacks has posted a video of a robot controlled very accurately through human motion via the Kinect.  This proof of concept is astonishing and I think the possibilities are endless.  Think about it, gaming, hazardous jobs, military…  This may all be closer than we think.
