I'm very happy to report that our good friend and colleague  Taylor Veltrop was selected as one of the Popular Mechanics Backyard Geniuses for 2011. The selection recognizes his work with "Wireless Marionettes" - their take on his innovative fusion of the Microsoft Kinect, Willow Garage ROS operating system, Nintendo Wiimotes, and several different robot species (Kondo and Aldebaran NAO).
