New Kinect contest – $8k up for grabs

ROS/Willow Garage have a new Kinect contest – $8k up for grabs. Thanks Travis!

We invite you to combine an RGB-D sensor (e.g. Kinect, PSDK5.0) with ROS to produce something new, interesting, and fun. It could be anything, from a novel robot control interface to a data-driven art project to pure computer vision. Bonus points if it’s also useful (see below). We’re offering $8K in prizes. As we promote open-source software, we encourage participants to share, and our rules and judging will reward participants who act in the spirit of collaboration.

ROS is a community effort, with many institutions contributing to its development. Much of the underlying platform is being developed by Willow Garage and Stanford.
