Bodily Human Robot Interaction

A cool idea of interaction with robots had researchers from the Brown University Robotics Group. They figured out some gestures - also with the whole body - to send commands to the robot. The signs are interpreted by a camera and gesture-recognition. A fist toggles the robot to "wait here". Another command means "go on and wait for me". The scenario on the video looks a little bit clumsy, but the future is at hand. Robots can become mates, able to "intuitively" follow us. "Mission Impossible" can come.
