Natural Kinect-Based Interface for AR.Drone

The Visualization and Graphics Group of the Dipartimento die Automaytica e Informatica of the Politecnico di Torino in Italy have made a natural kinect-based interface for the AR.Drone. It uses Flexible Action and Articulated Skeleton Toolkit (FAAST), PrimeSense NITE and OpenNI to interface to the kinect and DLL Drone to connect to the AR.Drone itself.

Leaning forward, backwards, to the left and to the right will make the drone move in those directions. Raising and lowering your left arm will control the drone’s height. Raising your right arm will make the drone take off as you can see in the demonstration video below.
