Steps toward the realization of a tele-nanorobotic manipulation system using a magnetically levitated hand controller coupled with a scanning tunneling microscope are discussed. With this system, it is possible to `manually' probe surfaces at atomic scale, while `feeling' the atomic-scale topography back in the operator's hand. Results for sputtered gold and graphite are presented
