Taylor Veltrop's announcement to ros-users
A year ago I released my first video of Kinect robotics when I loosely controlled a KHR (mini humanoid).
Now I have "completed" the robot avatar project. A treadmill, HMD, Wii remotes, Kinect, and NAO have all been integrated together using ROS to create a fully immersive experience. I really feel like my "self" is in the place of the robot while using this.
Here is a video demonstrating it, I use the interface to brush my cat remotely.
Actually it looks like the project is not really complete after all... Something I realized when filming this is that I need to add 2-way audio...
Hope you enjoy the video! Happy new year!
