Luis de Matos' wi-Go Project Uses XBox Kinect Sensors
Luis de Mato has started a project called wi-Go which "seeks to unite the technological knowledge and liability in the construction of a common path toward integration and improved quality of life." In this project, wi-Go is a robotic shopping cart that utilizes the sensor technology found on the Xbox Kinect that enables the user, such as the disabled, to carry objects without the need to push a cart. Like similar projects before it (See this past entry), this cart will follow the user by locking onto the nearby user and anticipate the intended direction the user is going to go. Pretty amazing technology. Check out the clip above.
