Mind Meld - Zoe McCarthy
This is a short and simple but really neat telepresence video showing off some tech that UC Berkeley student, Zoe McCarthy, is working on that allows her to control a robot's hands and camera using VR and some custom-made robo-gloves. My mind drifts off, dreaming about fighting other robots with robots in VR but in real life. My favorite part about this video is how everyone just ignores this weird robot-and-VR-girl pairing, like, "There's Zoe doing her crazy robot thing." They've seen it all before. Also, is UC Berkeley basically the school from Big Hero 6?
