Title: Can’t Make The Meeting? Send Your Robot Instead
Context: WANT!!!!! God as my witness, I’ll never go into the office again…
Synopsis: “It’s the next best thing to being there.” That old chestnut may actually be about to come true. Can’t be in two places at once? Not anymore. Take a dash of personal telepresence, throw in a healthy dose of robotics, add a pinch of not getting creeped out by disembodied heads rolling through your office and viola! The next best thing to being there indeed.
Best Bit: “In Seneca, N.Y., and Knox City, Texas, an elementary and a high school student are each using Vgo robots to attend classes and socialize with friends. Both suffer from rare diseases that prevent them from leaving their homes.”
