Stay away from meetings with iRobot Ava 500 telepresence bot
iRobot wants to help you stay away from work meetings, a sentiment we can all applaud.
Developed with Cisco’s TelePresence technology, the autonomously navigating machine is like a large, rolling webcam that lets remote users take part in “meetings and presentations where movement and location spontaneity are important.”
Ava 500 incorporates a Cisco TelePresence EX60 21.5-inch HD screen on a full-size platform that can roll along through places like plants, laboratories, or customer experience centers.
