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!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
