A Humanoid Robot Operated In VR 

On the off-chance that this is fake, well, it ought to be real.

Add “giant humanoid robot operator” to the list of jobs I’d like to have for at least a day. Over in Japan, a cool-ass bot is being controlled by a human using virtual reality goggles, and it’s pretty amazing to see.
