An iPad Telepresence Robot

Double Robotics out of Mountain View, California has offered up the latest, most insane plug-in for your iPad: a robotic extension appropriately named, Double. This product gives wheels to your iPad and gives users the ability to move around a space and interact with people thanks to a face-time/Skype-like application. Users can adjust height control and activate the retractable kickstand to conserve power when not rolling around. Currently the robotic iPad application is not selling until early 2013, but we’re hoping they start including mannequin facades to bring a little life to the Double and not make people look like stick figures with wheels for legs. Oh, and what about stairs? Or elevators… we hope that’s in line for the 2.0 (1The Double Double).
