The Kinect-A-Sketch: A Homebrew Robotic Sketcher

The Kinect-A-Sketch: A Homebrew Robotic Sketcher via TechCrunch.

In this episode of Waterloo Labs we show you how we combined an XBox Kinect, an Arduino, LabVIEW and an off the shelf Etch-a-Sketch to make the Kinect-a-Sketch. This system allows you to control the Etch-a-Sketch just by standing in front of the Kinect. You can you a gigantic pencil or even just your hand.
