“As a remote worker I’m fascinated by telepresence robots, or a remote robotic avatar which lives at an office and roams the halls under your control, typically interacting through a 2-way video chat tool,” Victor Agreda, Jr. reports for TUAW. “Naturally, Double Robotics took the iPad’s advantages and built what looks like a tiny Segway for the iPad to move about on, calling it the Double.”
“The Double mounts an iPad up top for communicating, has an adjustable height, and uses a second iPad for controls,” Agreda, Jr. reports. “The video below shows the robot in action.”
