Some people have developed a Delta robot that can be positioned using a Kinect sensor and an Arduino controller. Still pretty crude, but it is certainly pretty cool. But from all my work with delta robots I can tell you that a good robot can move much, much faster than a human. It's sorta like teaching a cheetah how to run like a human.
