Robot Arms That Are Controlled By Someone Else Via VR

You have to wonder what the inventor was thinking when he designed these robotic arms that are controlled by a second person via VR. Must. Resist. The. Nut Punch...

The limbs embracing Saraiji are long, lanky, and robotic, and they’re connected to a backpack he’s wearing. The arms are actually controlled remotely by another person, who’s wearing an Oculus Rift VR headset, with which they can see the world from Saraiji’s perspective (cameras linked to the backpack ensure a good view), and wield handheld controllers to direct the non-human arms and connected hands.
