Plenty of businesses use telepresence robots to keep their teams in touch. The Smartipresence is an affordable kit that brings a cardboard telepresence robot to your home. It is a robot body for your phone that can bring others into your place. The pilot can move the robot forward/back and look up and down.
This robot is pretty easy to use. Simply put it online, send the appropriate link to your friends and loved ones, and they will be able to see what the robot sees. As soon as the robot starts driving, you will be able to see the face of the operator on your phone. Expected to ship in October.[where to get it]
