Meet Hikari, The iPad Controlled Robot [Video]

Some say the iPad is a device for content consumption, many iPad owners are firmly convinced it can be used for content creation, too. After watching the following video, you'll be wondering if, actually, the tablet was meant for content disruption.

Without getting too technical, there's a robot controlled from an iPad which uses an app (TouchOSC) to send commands to a PC. The robot is connected to the Windows machine and can be controlled through the Open Sound Control (OSC) supported by the aforementioned app. It's quite complex, but it works. Hikari -- the robot -- can walk and stand up, move and even attack. On the author's Youtube channel, there are other videos when Hikari even learns to dance.
