Man Makes Home-Made Robot Piloting System; Brushes Incredibly Tolerant Cat

what is this I don't even


So, there’s a robot, and a cat, and a Kinect… this is what the internet likes, right? Taylor Veltrop put this rig together using a Nao robot, a Kinect sensor bar, two Wii remotes, a head-mounted display, and a treadmill; but he still needed a friend to make sure the cat stayed within optimal brushie range.

Sometimes I think the singularity will happen, sometimes I think there’s no reason why computer AI wouldn’t have the same urges to spend lots of time doing stuff like this too.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
