Robots to work

I've seen one of these virtual presence/teleprecence robots at a Google meeting before... but is was a bit futuristic and without huge real life value... but this made me think again:

This Texas student has a weakened immune system, and this robot now attends class and interact with friends and teachers without the risk of catching anything nasty. Awesome use of technology. And what I like a lot is that it's not space age tech... it's web cams and wheels and wifi... stuff we've all got to grips with already. 

Go Lyndon!
