Robot backpack gives helping hand

A robot attached to your body, designed to help with collaborative working, has been created at Tokyo-based Keio University’s Graduate School of Media Design.

The operator of the Fusion bot, who can be located in a different country, uses a virtual reality headset and controllers to move the bot.

By sharing the wearer’s point of view, the operator can assess the other person's motion and guide it - holding up their arms and moving them around when necessary.

BBC Click’s Spencer Kelly finds out more.
