Teleoperated robots are nothing new. They allow us to complete tasks in environments dangerous or not easily reachable for humans. HaptX, SynTouch, Shadow Robot Company, and ANA have combined to come up with a haptic telerobot that allows operators to receive touch feedback from the robot when handling items.
This robot uses the SynTouch BioTac sensor to feel everything your finger can, including force, vibration, and temperature. This video shows how such a robot can be used for cup stacking.
