Telemba Turns Your Old Roomba and Tablet Into a Telepresence Robot
Meet Telemba, which its creators say is the "world's cheapest telepresence robot."
Like other telepresence robots, Telemba works as your robotic body at a remote location: using a computer, you can drive Telemba around and interact with people remotely. You see what the robot sees, and you can attend meetings or just hang out with friends.
Telemba was created by a team of Japanese roboticists who wanted to design a simplified and inexpensive telepresence robot. After testing and improving their initial prototypes, they decided to put their project on Kickstarter. For $170 you can get a Telemba Basic [pictured above] and for $150 you get a shorter version, called the Telemba Mini.
