Walky- The iPhone Controlled Robot


How cool would it be to control your favourite robot toy with finger gestures on your iPhone? Yuta Sugiura and his colleagues at the Keio University have developed a new control system for robots called ‘Walky’ that lets you control various robots with your iPhone.

Walky can be used to make the robot walk, jump, turn and even kick a mini football, check out the video below which shows it in action.

The controls are shown working on a small bipedal humanoid robot, but could also be used to control game characters.

Very cool, it certainly looks like a fun way to control robot toys.
