The Haptic Wand by Quanser
You hold onto the wand and magically the robotic device several feet away makes the exact same movements — up, down, sideways, etc. Not only that, through haptics technology, you can "feel" resistance when you bump up against something. This product is being used by researchers working on thing like "virtual surgery."
