HARV lets you control a robot with your head



The Head Aimed Remote Viewer, HARV, uses the 3DVisor on your head and the gimbal-mounted camera on the robot’s “head” to let you see precisely what the robot sees, and direct the camera’s movement just by moving your head around. Want to see what’s to the left? Move your head left. Great for everything from mine disposal to controlling bulldozers. According to Chatten, “The sense of tele-presence is so convincing that the operator’s vision processing is ”fooled“ into believing the operator is actually on the vehicle.” [GT]
