## Dean Kamen

Dean L. Kamen (born April 5, 1951) is an American engineer, inventor, and businessman.

## Degrees of freedom (mechanics)

In physics, the degree of freedom (DOF) of a mechanical system is the number of independent parameters that define its configuration.

## Degrees of freedom (physics and chemistry)

In physics, a degree of freedom is an independent physical parameter in the formal description of the state of a physical system.

## Degrees of freedom problem

The degrees of freedom problem or motor equivalence problem in motor control states that there are multiple ways for humans or animals to perform a movement in order to achieve the same goal.

## Descent (1995 video game)

Descent is a 3D first-person shooter video game developed by Parallax Software and released by Interplay in 1995.

## Direct current

Direct current (DC) is the unidirectional flow of electric charge.

## First-person shooter

First-person shooter (FPS) is a video game genre centered around gun and other weapon-based combat in a first-person perspective; that is, the player experiences the action through the eyes of the protagonist.

## Flight dynamics

Flight dynamics is the study of the performance, stability, and control of vehicles flying through the air or in outer space.

## Flight simulator

A flight simulator is a device that artificially re-creates aircraft flight and the environment in which it flies, for pilot training, design, or other purposes.

## Forsaken (video game)

Forsaken is a 3D first-person shooter video game.

## Forward kinematics

Forward kinematics refers to the use of the kinematic equations of a robot to compute the position of the end-effector from specified values for the joint parameters.

## Geometric terms of location

Geometric terms of location describe directions or positions relative to the shape of an object.

## Homeworld

Homeworld is a real-time strategy video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by Sierra Studios on September 28, 1999, for Microsoft Windows.

## Humanoid robot

A humanoid robot is a robot with its body shape built to resemble the human body.

## Inverse kinematics

Inverse kinematics is the mathematical process of recovering the movements of an object in the world from some other data, such as a film of those movements, or a film of the world as seen by a camera which is itself making those movements.

## Labtec

Labtec Inc. was a manufacturer of computer accessories, founded in Vancouver, Washington, United States in 1981.

## Logitech

Logitech International S.A. (commonly referred to as Logitech or Logi; stylized as logitech, previously LOGITECH) is a Swiss provider of personal computer and mobile accessories, with its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland and administrative headquarters in Newark, California.

## Miner Wars 2081

Miner Wars 2081 is a six degrees of freedom action-survival space-shooter simulation game produced by Keen Software House.

## Neck

The neck is the part of the body, on many vertebrates, that separates the head from the torso.

## Orientation (geometry)

In geometry the orientation, angular position, or attitude of an object such as a line, plane or rigid body is part of the description of how it is placed in the space it occupies.

## Original equipment manufacturer

An Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is a company that produces parts and equipment that may be marketed by another manufacturer.

Overload is a 3D first-person shooter video game developed and released by Revival Productions for Windows, macOS and Linux on May 31, 2018.

## Parallel manipulator

A parallel manipulator is a mechanical system that uses several computer-controlled serial chains to support a single platform, or end-effector.

## Perpendicular

In elementary geometry, the property of being perpendicular (perpendicularity) is the relationship between two lines which meet at a right angle (90 degrees).

## Position (vector)

In geometry, a position or position vector, also known as location vector or radius vector, is a Euclidean vector that represents the position of a point P in space in relation to an arbitrary reference origin O. Usually denoted x, r, or s, it corresponds to the straight-line from O to P. The term "position vector" is used mostly in the fields of differential geometry, mechanics and occasionally vector calculus.

## Razer Hydra

The Razer Hydra (previously known as Sixense TrueMotion) is a motion and orientation detection game controller developed by Sixense Entertainment, a company founded in 2007, in partnership with Razer USA.

## Rigid body

In physics, a rigid body is a solid body in which deformation is zero or so small it can be neglected.

## Robot

A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer— capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically.

## Rotation

A rotation is a circular movement of an object around a center (or point) of rotation.

## Segway PT

The Segway PT (originally Segway HT) is a two-wheeled, self-balancing personal transporter by Segway Inc. Invented by Dean Kamen and brought to market in 2001.
