    the future of population … rather than get more people in your country to beat the other countries … you could just copy some successful people skills then add automation & AI to this robot … kaboom you got a work power as you need … or unlimited number of multi high skilled accurate soldiers in battles … with their spare parts if they injured

    I just know that somebody is gonna spend a few thousand bucks on a robot and Oculus with Touch controllers, just so they can do this. The head, hand, and finger tracking of the Oculus would probably do a pretty good job of letting you control the robot. And the controllers would even allow you to move the robot using the joysticks if the robot was on a moving base.
