The UntitledTitle are looking for ways to make interaction with their vehicles natural and intuitive. With this in mind they implemented a demo for fast, dynamic interaction with a quadrotor vehicle using the Kinect sensor in the Flying Machine Arena.

To activate the copter the user lifts his arm and to stop it he claps. The rest of the interaction is performed by swinging his arms around to rotate and steer the vehicle.

This demo is the result of a ETH Zurich Bachelor Thesis by Armin Amb
