In honor pf the one year anniversary of the Microsoft Kinect (http://buildsmartrobots.ning.com/profiles/blogs/one-year-anniversar…) I decided to write an article on how to build a Kinect based robot.  This is actually the second iteration of Kinectbot (I am not a very creative robot namer), the first attempt was taller but not very stable.  


He also has this great write up!

The Microsoft Kinect was released in the US on November 4, 2010.  It was hacked on November 10, 2010.
