Kinect - Follow Me

Follow Me - EddieRobot with Kinect for Windows.
I will use the programming codes shared by Todd Christell (http://roboticsathome.wordpress.com), still waiting for my EddieRobot platform delivery.

Project Costs:
  1. Estimate cost of a Laptop is $300-750 depending on brand and specification (I have a refurbished laptop, and fixed the broken screen for $60). My laptop hardware specification is running Windows 7.0 on Intel i5 with 6GB RAM and 500GB hard drive.
  2. Microsoft Kinect for Windows Motion Sensor ($250)
  3. EddieRobot Platform $1249 + $106 for shipping/handling fee.
I will update this page ... please check back again.
