25 RBOT100In today’s installment of robots we wished we had when we were younger, we have the R.Bot 100. The R.Bot 100 is a telepresence robot that can act as a stand in for someone who can’t be there. Users control the R.Bot 100 using a laptop or a smartphone with an installed app or simple web browser interface. With the use of headphones and a microphone, users can communicate through the robot and command it from the comfort of their home. Say in the case of a child who is bed-ridden from a sickness, it will allow him/her to still attend class and not miss a lesson until fully recovered. Since the robot is mobile, it can also move around and communicate with the kids’ friends. With a battery that lasts 8 hours, it should be more than enough for a full day of activity before it needs another charge. The best part about the R.Bot 100 is its price: the robot is said to cost no more than a high-end computer. With a price tag of $3,000 it’s hard to disagree. Head over to the R.Bot website for more details or hit the break to watch a video of the R.Bot 100 in action:
