Submission + - Robotic Presence for a Telecommuter 1

McGregorMortis writes: Ivan lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and telecommutes to work in Waterloo, Ontario. But in meetings, speakerphones suck. Can't hear everybody, can't move around, no visual contact. So, he made an IvanAnywhere robot to give him a physical presence in the office. If Ivan wants to talk to you, he just steers radio-controlled IvanAnywhere into your office for a chat.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
