Not sure if this is the appropriate section, but it's as close as I can get to a proper forum section, since it involves a console accessory.

Controlling a robot using Kinect:

Demonstration of the program for controlling robot (without Kinect) - from smart phone or cockpit like setup:

Their homepage: http://vsido.uijin.com/ (not in English though)

The robot used is a hobbyist robot kit dressed to look somewhat like a Gundam mech – an actual robotic Gundam toy/model cannot be too far off.

The software used is called V-Sido. Particularly impressive is the fact that the robot independently maintains its balance rather than falling over in certain postures…
