Ratheon-Sarcos Robot Able To Move Large Objects

Engineers at Raytheon-Sarcos have built a robot that is basically a tele operated arm attached to a modified Ditch Witch.

This robot allows the operator to move heavy objects with ease.

The operator can either stand on the machine and move his arms to operate the machine or the machine can be remotely operated up to 5 miles away.

The operator receives force reflection feedback and can feel what the giant arms are actually doing.

We have seen similar things from Raytheon before, specifically the XOS Exoskeleton that allows the wearer to lift up to 200 pounds.
