Remember the Segway? It never quite revolutionized transportation, but a similar mobility technology now underpins this telepresence robot, called Anybot. It glides on two wheels around an office or factory to let workers videoconference with the boss, who can control the contraption from a remote keyboard. The Anybot is equipped with an obstacle-sensing and guidance system to avoid crashing into things.
