Did you ever want to be in two places at the same time? Who wouldn’t want to do that? Being able to multiply and handle many things at the same time sounds like a fantastic idea. Teleportation is yet to come but the market developed the next best thing – telepresence robots.
You don’t have to look far for examples of telepresence robots. Medicine and education are natural choices here. The whole idea behind the concept is that a robot can be present in one room, one city, country, and sometimes even a continent, however the person operating it – someplace else. A doctor operating on a patient in the U.S while physically being in the U.K. A teacher launching an experiment in class while being on a semi-sick leave. That’s not the future, that’s 2021.
