We have been experimenting recently with a new tool from Double Robotics known as robotic telepresence.

Basically the idea is something like this:  imagine having an iPad stuck on top of a Segway that you can remotely drive around.

Iona on a Double Robotics robot in my office

This is what it looked like when my daughter Iona used it to check out my newly painted (orange obviously!) office.

The left hand side is the screen of her laptop, the right is what I saw as she followed m down the hallway.

We have been using the robots for remotely attending meetings, giving presentations, and attending conferences.

How would you feel about us coming to visit via robot?

How would you use a tool like this?
