Qbo Robot as Gesture Controlled Music Player

Robots are awesome, and one of the more hackable of them out there is the Qbo, that can be programmed to do all sorts of things. The latest programming hack for the little bot turns the Qbo into a music player that supports gestures for controlling the tunes.

QBO Robot Music Player

The robot has stereoscopic vision that senses the hands that are close to it and watches them for gesture commands. The bot understands enough gestures to do all the things you’d expect a media player to do. For instance, to pause or play the music you hold up a fist.

Controlling volume is done by making a “V” with your fingers and holding the “V” up for volume up and down for volume down. The tracks can be skipped back and forth by pointing with a finger left or right. It’s pretty cool actually, and you can see QBO in action on the video above.
