Students build electric sofa to travel around campus

A team of engineering students from the University of New South Wales in Australia has created a robotic couch to travel around campus.

It can move in any direction and is controlled manually using an Xbox gamepad. Movement can also be pre-programmed.

BBC News spoke to Stephanie McArthur, one of the students behind the project.
