Gesture Controlled Spider Bots

An arachnophobes worst nightmare, yes that’s right a gesture controlled spider robot! Meet Curie, Intel’s wearable technology solution introduced by CEO Brian M. Krzanich at this year’s Intel Developer Forum Shenzhen. Krzanich demonstrated on stage how he was able to control 4 spider robots by “waking them up” simply by twisting his hand palm side up then raising his arm in an upwards motion, he then went on to command the robots to change the colors of their LED’s and even more freakishly commanded them to pump their “Fists” in the air. All this was made possible with a small button sized computer attached to a wrist band he wore on his arm.
