With all the Kinect hacks we’re seeing, it probably doesn’t matter whether gamers are leaving their motion-control sensors to gather dust or otherwise; there are enough DIY-addicts buying it to make the peripheral a success. Latest is Asura’s V-Sido remote app for the G-Robots GR-001 ‘bot, which can follow your movements for some aerobics-style mimicry.

Usually the GR-001 is controlled via a PlayStation-style remote, but this new Kinect hack makes it a whole lot more direct than flailing your fingers around. No word on when – or if – they’ll be releasing the software publicly, but it’s just another sign of Kinect’s flexibility.
