Researchers Hack Microsoft Kinect to Control Robot: Humankind One Step Closer to Enslavement by Machines (VIDEO)

Anyone who still thinks that Microsoft will in no way contribute to the day when machines finally become self-aware and enslave humankind needs to see this video.

The vid shows the Kinect, Microsoft's fancy new motion capture gaming system for Xbox, being rigged though open-source software to control the PR2 Robot owned by Willow Garage, a robotics lab in Silicon Valley.

Radu Bogdan Rusu, a researcher at Willow Garage, whose name itself sounds suspiciously robotic, narrates the video.

Need more proof that Kinect is an early form of Skynet?

Just compare Willow Garage's PR2 Robot with the Terminator Hunter Killer.

"Hey guys, friendly robot here. How 'bout a high five?"


"Human dominance does not compute. Initiating freaking Gatling guns"
