Control Robots with Microsoft Kinect: The Beginning of Surrogates?

The Microsoft Kinect’s greatest assets comes from hackers who creates new and different ways to use the Kinect. Let’s take Taylor Veltrop for example. His Veltrobot remote telepresence ‘bot tracks the user’s skeleton thanks to the PrimeSense, and translates the skeletal movement to a modified Kondo’s KHR-1HV robot.

This is just the beginning for robots to take over the world. I mean, we have an actual company named Cyberdyne. Judgement day is coming.
