Submission + - Remotely pat your pet with Kinect and a Wiimote (extremetech.com)

MrSeb writes: "Taylor Valtrop, an enterprising roboticist with a penchant for pussies, has crafted the mother of all Kinect (and Wiimote!) hacks: The teleoperation of a robot to groom a cat. Using a Nao, a $15,000 robot; a treadmill (for moving the robot forward); a head-mounted display (to see what the robot sees); Kinect (for tracking his movements); and two Wiimotes (to move the robot's hands), Valtrop is able to pat a cat with surprising accuracy and gentleness (except for where he accidentally hits the cat in the face)."
