Teleoperation of Novel Systems

What is the best way to control a teleoperated manipulator? What if the manipulator is untethered, and doesn't look anything like a traditional industrial robot? Must/should we include haptic feedback to the human operator? Are any of these commercially available human-input devices, many of which are capable of some form of haptic feedback, appropriate for our task, or must we design a custom device?
