A university professor in Australia has strapped himself onto a giant robot arm for 30 minutes to explain his new idea.

Professor Stelios Arcadiou, who is nicknamed 'the nutty professor', decided to ride the arm to show how humans and robots can work together.

He said he was a bit sore afterwards but otherwise fine.
