Microsoft Demos Eddie Robot With Party Photo App via @AutomatonBlog

Microsoft has followed up their recent release of Robotics Developer Studio 4 and "Eddie" platform with this demo showing how Eddie can be programmed to be an autonomous party photographer, aka "Roborazzi." I'd tell you all about it myself, but wouldn't you rather hear it from the dude who actually put the project together? Sure you would! Not a bad demo, really. It's a nice way to leverage what Kinect is best at (people tracking), and the camera integration makes it handy to have around for all of those wild parties that you've never invited me to. Oh well, I guess now I can at least watch it all on Flickr. :( Via [ Microsoft Robotics Blog ]
