Wear the Two-Armed Robot Companion, Fusion, Like a Backpack

With a head and two arms, Fusion is a robot prototype by Syrian designer Yamen Saraiji that’s supposed to be worn like a backpack. The machine’s two eyes act as cameras, porting a shared perspective to a second person, who can then operate both arms remotely (through an Oculus Rift headset and Touch controllers). The goal here is to enable work between collaborators who aren’t in the same area (the same country), even when that work requires more than two hands. Read more—and see the video—at Dezeen.
