The Titan 4 is Remote Controlled.

The Titan 4 is remote operated at Discovery Place’s display, and has camera’s placed so the viewer can see all objects in the way, the robot arm, and another camera is used so other viewers can watch him manuever the arm. Shown in the picture is a viewer “grabbing” coins with the control. Seen in the smaller screen to the left, the coin itself is viewable.
