Submission + - Hacked Kinect on a mobile robot does 3D mapping an

An anonymous reader writes: I just wanted to send along our early efforts in using the Kinect depth camera
on a mobile robot. I believe this is the first video showing off the hacked
Kinect on a robot platform: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dRPEns8MS2o
The robot uses the camera for 3D mapping and follows gestural directions. It's
basically a pimped iRobot Create with a battery-powered Kinect which streams
the depth and color images to a remote host for SLAM and 3D map processing.
This may be a useful platform for an introductory robotics class as well.
