Disney Research Robot

    Already there are robots that can throw the ball or juggle (independently). This creation from Disney Research can quite successfully throw a ball in tandem with a living person.

    Both Microsoft Kinect and Xtion Pro Live from ASUS are mentioned as the technologies used.

    The robot monitors the movement of a person to catch the ball and throw it back, and most often it turns out quite successfully. If the ball is not caught, the robot can shrug and look after him.

    Also on the video you can see the attempts of people to juggle with the robot.

    The company intends to bring interaction with people to the mind and place such robots in Disneyland.

    Of course, if we talk about Robocalypse and Skynet, we can begin to make assumptions about which of this company will be responsible for throwing grenades at live targets.
