13 anybots QBThe telepresence business robots what we first reported on during the middle of last year are finally making its way to customers worldwide. AnyBots, creator of the QB telepresence robots have announced that customers who have pre-ordered the QB will be receiving their orders this week and customers who purchase them today will receive them in March. The AnyBots QB is a robot that allows you to attend meetings and work remotely through a simple web interface. With a Segway like body that allows it to get around easily and high definition cameras for you to “see” with, you can be sure that your presence will be felt in the office/workplace where the QB is, while you could be miles away on vacation or attending an important event.
