I just played with the future: PadBot and Telepresence Robots for all of us?

Greetings from SALSA. I just spent a few minutes postoperatively wandering around my friend Perry Mayer’s clinic in Hamilton, Ontario. This was courtesy of Perry’s very own PadBot, which allows simple controls from iPhone/Android to allow interaction and easy movement. It feels like controlling a virtual Segway, of sorts. This is just awesome.

While telepresence robots have been around for a while, none have been this inexpensive or easy to use.
