Telepresence via Mobile Robotics

Story of the visit of a conference via a mobile robot.  The idea is simple, practical to a certain degree.   Has been mocked in TV ads. Not quite the same experience as being there, but there has also been considerable increase in just using web conferences for the same idea.  We examined the idea for maintenance support in plants, but the cost was too high at the time and added another layer of maintenance.  The article here links to video of the experience. Device used was from Double Robotics.  Shown at the right.

Does this mean we can all have doubles, or more?  Of course this is just the earth-bound kind, the drones have now arrived as well.  Easier telepresence  is here.
