If weird technology intrigues you this piece of news sure will. The Yamagata University in Japan has been developing this robot, known as Miniature Humanoid or MH-2, that you can wear on your shoulder, while your friend back home puts on a 360-degree immersive 3D display and stands in front of some sort of motion capture environment (like a Kinect) and sees everything that the robot on your shoulder views.
