OK, at $3,000 each they're way too expensive, but if I want any toy to play with before I retire I want this. Jim Groom had one of these telepresence robots working in his office, and from everything I can see, it would be perfect for remote meetings and events (especially since it allows for the informal conversations in the hall that invariably follow). Groom writes, " You can control the robot from the browser, and adjust the height of the “head” which is an iPad mounted on a modded segueway. When you lower the 'head' the robot can move pretty quickly, and you have more control to get around. One you are ready to stay put, you can park the robot and share links, pictures, videos, etc."
