Building Arduino robots is pretty cool, but being able to program a robot in Javascript is even better. However, what is even more awesome is the ability to control a robot with Kinect gestures.

During this presentation Joel will give you a brief introduction to the awesome world of NodeJs, Johnny-Five and Socket.io. The session will deliver an overview of a Kinect gesture detection library and how to connect it to a node-bot.
