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.

Father Robot #1 Review

Inside Robot Cabaret 'Robot Restaurant" In Tokyo
Many great science fiction stories are predicated on the idea of machines or robots or some other artificial construct gaining consciousness and searching for proof of their own humanity. Father Robot seeks to follow in those footsteps, while also adding in a healthy dose of Avatar's alternate body scenario. The resulting combination is compelling enough to drive the series in its first issue. Whether this comic will make full use of its premise ...
