Robotic arm ride for Perth professor

A university professor in Perth has allowed himself to be gyrated by by a giant industrial arm for 30 minutes to demonstrate his latest innovation.

The academic, known as Stelarc and nicknamed by the tabloid press as the nutty professor, strapped himself to the $80,000 robot and allowed it to propel him in different trajectories.

He said the aim was to show the interaction between human and machine.
