Telepresence robots are nothing new. There are already expensive robots you can buy to keep up with your colleagues across the world or even keep an eye on your loved ones. The PadBot happens to be an interesting telepresence robot that lets you communicate with others through voice and video updates in real-time. It uses iPad, iPad Mini, or an Android tablet as its brain.
This robot connects to your tablet via Bluetooth. Padbots can communicate with each other using WiFi/4G connections. The PadBot has sessions servers to help coordinate conversations. The robot has a tilting and rising head. Its fixture is stretchable. You get a collision prevention and anti-falling system. This white goose-alike robot is designed for indoor use.
