Kinect-based robot follows you around (Oh, so cool video)

Watch a 4-minute video of a Kinect-based robot built with Microsoft's robotics kit, designed to follow its owner around the house. Of special note are the cans of Kinect-branded soda.

I've been wanting to kick off the "Oh, so cool" series here on DIY-IT for a long time. There are a lot of DIY projects out there that are amazingly cool and from time-to-time, I'll select one I think is particularly cool and spotlight it in a quick post.

This one is a video of a Kinect-based robot built with Microsoft's robotics kit, designed to follow its owner around the house. Of special note are the cans of Kinect-branded soda.

What could you build with a Kinect and a robotics kit? Just how much free time do you have? TalkBack below.
