Double Robotics – Physical iPad Avatar

Have you ever dreamed of visiting the world without leaving home? To be present at a place without actually being here, like in the movies Surrogates or iPad Avatar? It is now possible. The Double Robotics company sells a robot equipped with an iPad mini, which moves and balances on two wheels like a Segway. Called simply “Double“, this robot allows you to “be there” and navigate through this physical avatar with the camera and the screen of the iPad mini… Awesome future or disturbing dream? In any case the first built series is already entirely sold… It will cost you $ 1999 for this gadget (iPad mini included).
