How Do People Respond To Physical Contact with Robots
Yeah, this video is a little weird, but it does discuss a valid idea. If we’re going to have robots in hospitals and the service industry, they are going to have to make contact with humans at some point. How’s that gonna work out?
Also note the “head” of the robot at the end of the video. In the span of less than 6 months, the Kinect has gone from a video game peripheral to a regular tool in robotics labs around the world. Nice!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
