Bizarre Wearable Robot Lets You Take Your Friends with You When They're Not There

One of the strangest robots I've seen in a long time has turned up from Japanese researchers at Yamagata University. The robot is called the MH-2 and it's a small torso only robot with two cameras on its head. The robot is worn on a user's shoulder and is intended to be teleoperated remotely. The dual cameras on the have the robot allow the operator to have a 360° 3-D view of the environment.

The idea is that a person can wear the robot when they wanted to travel or go somewhere, but didn't want to be alone. They could take someone else along with them to view the surroundings. The little robot has arms and hands that would move in time to the movements of the operator using motion detection technology such as Kinect.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
