[Ros-kinect] Robot Avatar Project Complete

Taylor Veltrop
Hi Everyone,

A year ago I released my first video of Kinect robotics when I loosely controlled a KHR (mini humanoid).

Now I have "completed" the robot avatar project.  A treadmill, HMD, Wii remotes, Kinect, and NAO have all been integrated together using ROS to create a fully immersive experience.  I really feel like my "self" is in the place of the robot while using this.

Here is a video demonstrating it, I use the interface to brush my cat remotely.

Actually it looks like the project is not really complete after all... Something I realized when filming this is that I need to add 2-way audio...

Hope you enjoy the video!  Happy new year!

Is there any chance you can share the code please? I'm trying to learn the benefits of Kinect with ROS and I would appreciate any guide.
