MeBot telepresence robot

The brilliant folks over at MIT have come up with a new telepresence robot known as MeBot.

A couple of tiny T-Rex arms allows it to perform non-verbal communication, but too bad there aren’t enough fingers for it to flip a bird. With a mobile base, the MeBot gets around quite easily. What are some of the more practical aspects that you would use the MeBot for?
