Believe it or not, both the original movie and the #HBO remake of Westworld are relatively grounded when compared to other works of speculative fiction, but they still have some fantastical predictions for the future that audiences believe will never happen in real life. Toyota and other car companies are also looking to venture into this new frontier, and cars capable of driving themselves may soon fill the highways.#The Terminator movies predict a dark future for humanity, where the remnants of mankind struggle to fight the unstoppable cyborg armies of the artificial intelligence network #Sky Net.The Hosts are used and abused by Westworld patrons for just about anything, including the guest's sexual desires. have yet to be created for worldwide consumers, but the latest advancements in smart cars are closer than ever to bringing vehicles like K. While combat-ready robots like the T-800 are still a long way off, significant progress has been made in both military-grade and civilian-level robotics since the film's release.If bigger robot companies get hold of the tech, it could dispose of the need for sophisticated image-recognition computing or strap-on motion sensing/tracking suits.
We can see some of its flaws in the fact that when the ‘bot falls, Taylor has to remember to position his arms carefully to pick it up because Kinect is still tracking them.
But make no mistake, this is big stuff: It was crafted quickly by an enthusiast, using relatively inexpensive gear.
As outlandish as the idea of robots and lifelike sex-bots may be today, such a technological innovation is about to become available to consumers before the end of 2017. The most famous humanoid robot to date is #ASIMO, created by Honda in 2000.
This invention joins the long list of sci-fi technologies that have eventually ended up being available to customers in the real world. ASIMO is capable of storing memory, interacting with humans and autonomous navigation.
My guess is that sex could be determined through bodyshape, movement traits / gestures / other.
The best bet may be to determine through voice recognition.
Check out the results below: (Taylor explains his project at the start, and the good stuff happens after )Impressive stuff–even while it’s only mapped onto the robot’s arms for the moment.
From the experiment we can see how quickly the mapping between Taylor’s gestures and the robot’s happen, that the range of motion of the ‘bot is smaller than his, and that there could be a better way (using reverse kinematics) to control the robot where the position of the controller’s limbs are calculated, rather than the angle of each joint.

I am working on an advertising application using Kinect, and what I want to do is when a man comes within a range of Kinect, it should display ads related to mens products and same goes with women. The Kinect API allows you to determine body position through a number of points at key locations (e.g. There's nothing in the API to allow you to determine sex. Along with mic and IR cam for depth data, the Kinect also has a regular camera, so you can acquire a stream from the camera, pipe its output into another API that deals with computer vision (e.g.
