The PlayStation Move Can Control Robots Too

Yesterday Sony unveiled Move.Me, a software application that allows hobbyists and academics access to the Move controller to do things like operating robots remotely. Today, we see the Move operating a robot remotely.

While not quite as impressive as some of the things we've seen hobbyists do with Microsoft's Kinect, moving a robot around remotely using motion control is certainly a thing. Until now we've had to rely on keyboards and mice to move our robots around remotely over the internet. Surely this ushers in a new age of not being tethered to the computer to get mechanical beings to do our bidding.

No, wireless keyboards and mice don't count. Stop trying to steal the Move's thunder.


    I wonder if this was made specifically because of the amount of kinect hacks that were coming out. Try and promote interest in the Move.

      Probably. I'm sure Sony weren't impressed that their device was being completely overshadowed. This is their way of going "Hey guys, our stuff is cool too".

        sony need to bury their heads in the sand. they're always doing something thats already been done before.
