Kinect Used to Control Helicopters (Video)
If you’re getting bored of manipulating virtual objects with the Kinect, here’s a story that will excite you: researchers have implemented a demo for interaction with a quadrotor vehicle (essentially a helicopter with four rotors) using the Kinect. By simple motion commands, they are able to direct the hovering aircraft to move in various directions and even flip.
The result? Something that looks an awful lot like using The Force.
Watch it in action:
Do or do not. There is no try.
