Seems like we will be getting Kinect-controlled robots on a monthly basis from now on. This time, it’s Japan-based Asura Engineering (known for its real-time robot control system V-Sido), which made a pretty cool video of a Kinect-controlled mini humanoid.
The robot you can see in the clip embedded below is the GR-001 [JP], which stands 255mm and weighs 900g. The little guy is sold in Japan for $2,400 by the way (including a regular remote control).
Here’s the clip:
