Space-age Cockpit Gives You Bug-bot Vision

FuRo and Leading Edge Design, the guys who came up with the Halluc II robot have been showing off the little Linux beastie's moves, using their Hull cockpit.
Boasting a 150-cm hemispherical screen which displays video from the
camera embedded at the front of the robot, the cockpit has another
little trick up its sleeve. Check out the two vids below.

When Halluc II
gets too close to the sides of the pit, the joystick will become stiff
and harder to manipulate, in order to prevent anyone having to scrape
the cockroach off the walls.
