The Beam is a telepresence robot from SuitableTech. They have two Beams at Brown University in the USA. Through the Beam I can walk around remote spaces as though I actually there. I can turn around to look at someone when I’m spoken to; I can walk down corridors whilst having a conversation with somebody, no matter where they are in the world. Obviously wherever they are has to have a Beam robot handy!
More on this to come.
