Robot Made from an iPad and costs under $2000 – Austin Visuals Reports

Double Robotics, a California based company has created a telepresence robot that is a remarkable achievement. This robot kit allows the user to slide in an iPad to the robot’s “face” and takes up very little space in the areas it operates within. This robot kit is called “Double.” Take a look at some great footage over this product here :

The Double uses a pair of wheels, an adjustable pole, and an iPad holder. This robot is controlled by an operator from a remote location from another iPad. An app on the iPad allows the user to move the robot around the remote location as well as adjust the pole that contains the robot’s face so that operators can remain face  level with workers in remote facilities. he real hallmark of the Double telepresence robot is the price.

Its standard MSRP will be $2499. Buyers who pre-order now can get the robot for $1999. Neither of those prices includes the iPad that needs to be installed on the Double or the iPad used to control the Double remotely. The first batch of robots is expected to ship in December with pre-orders placed this week going out in early 2013.
