Seven years have passed since Double Robotics launched its first telepresence robot, a device that we speculated at the time could transform the way interactions take place between offices and remote workers around the world. But it didn’t happen.
This was largely because the first Double telepresence robot was little more than an iPad on wheels, a machine that wasn’t the easiest to control, and one that came with few features.
Jump forward two iterations and we now have something a good deal more advanced than the original design, a robot that you might well imagine one day rolling around the workplace as remote workers catch up with their team at HQ. Really.
