A Robot Who Can Be Your Real-Life Avatar

One of the dreams of robotics has been to create a machine that can act as a remote version of its operator - like the movie Surrogates, only cool. Now a group of Korean engineers have brought us closer to this goal.

According to Plastic Pals:

The Korea Institute of Science & Technology (KIST) held an open house Technology Exhibit, where some of their latest research and development projects were showcased . . . Mahru III, a humanoid robot co-developed by KIST and Samsung, copies the movements of a human wearing a special suit which senses muscle movements.
