Robot will beam live Moon pictures to Oculus users
Scientists at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a robot which they plan to land on the Moon to act as eyes for Earth-bound space enthusiasts.
The project is part of a $30m prize from Google offered to a team that can send video back from the moon.
The robot has already been shown to potential investors, including Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart.
It works in tandem with an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset.
