Telepresence Robots: A Love Story

Telepresence Robots: A Love Story

So, Apple sells these telepresence robots now—it’s basically an iPad with Skype, mounted on a tiny Segway. One of the art directors from IBM who spoke at Hopscotch Design fest said they started using these to coordinate with members of their team in different cities and countries, since IBM is a global company. I know it really is a useful tool, but it’s also just so…. absurd. Like what if these were how you communicated with all your coworkers? I keep seeing this joke on sitcoms, bringing people into a situation on an iPad, but come on. Is this real?
