Boss on Wheels

  • August 25, 2010

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.
