Microsoft Kinect is Monkey Business

Posted by TurtleGirl On August - 11 - 2011

Microsoft’s Kinect likes to monkey around in it’s spare time. Yes, there is a monkey involved, but only of the robotic kind.
 

This little monkey skeleton can mimic the movements of a person standing in front of it. Watching it for the first time is kind of freaky, I’m not sure if that’s due to a stuffed monkey jumping around or just the voice of the narrator.

Nevertheless, it’s been genuinely pieced together and created by Jan M Sieber and Ralph Kistler. It uses a camera sensor for the Kinect, an Arduino microcontroller and 10 servomotors. It’s been suspended from the wall where it can move about freely, but it’s just interesting that by using technology and toys you can create something as impressive as this. Now, where did I put that banana?
