Telepresence robots are now firmly in the mainstream. We have all seen the videos of roving robots wandering the halls of major corporations or, more comically, stuck in elevators. Even more exciting, people are now being introduced to a new class of affordable tabletop telepresence robots that are making waves beyond the boardroom. These products are making a huge impact in the education space, improving student outcomes, extending the reach of teachers beyond the physical classroom, offering new tools for psychologists and trainers and quickly becoming an important tool for all ages and levels. This process is only going to speed up as the tech becomes more affordable. The cost of telepresence robots has dropped significantly in recent years – from over $15,000 to $8000 to $3000 and now below $1,000.
