Double Robotics makes a telepresence robot based on iOS that’s useful for telecommuters who want or need to maintain a physical presence in a remote office but can’t actually be on location. Roam throughout the office, and engage in mobile teleconferencing with anyone. The two-wheeled system works on the same principle that enables the Segway personal mover to operate – a gyroscope and an accelerometer. You control it remotely using your own IPAD, but the Double itself uses an IPAD as well – one equipped with a magnetically attached wide-angle lens and a mirror that enables you to see the floor to navigate through tight spots. Rene and Georgia took a Double for a spin at CES and said hi to some fellow showgoers – check out this cool new technology in this short video. And please check out more of our CES coverage on our #CESlive Superpage!
