Project:Kinect Robotic Arm
The idea here is to have an intelligent Robot Arm that is able to find and pick objects, not using a pre-determined sequence of steps nor some kind of remote control, but instead use Kinect sensor to find the objects to pick.
Later one could add some wheels to it - with a mobile platform, this would in fact be converted into an autonomous robot. The Kinect would also be used to detect and avoid obstacles.
