Gesture Controlled Robots

August 8th, 2009

Some time ago a Tokyo University engineer has developed a very original way to control robots by using simple gestures. This robot is supposed to have cameras that would detect body movements and later translate these actions into movements. Such discovery would allow a user to control something like the direction of a robot by pointing which way they would like it to go. What I find appealing with this way of controlling a robot is that gesture movements are a perfectly natural thing to do for a human being, contrary to using a keyboard or other input devices. We see more and more inventions being made that are making the communication gap between humans and robots smaller and smaller. What do you think about it?
