ORIGIBOT: 3D Printed and WebRTC-Enabled Telepresence Robot to Launch Tomorrow on Indiegogo
The ORIGIBOT, a fully robotic platform which connects with an Android tablet or phone via a free app built by Origin Robotics, Inc., is "a complete telepresence solution."
So what are we talking about here? A robot arm capable of opening your refrigerator, showing you the contents and then bringing you an ice-cold beverage, that's what.
The creators say the system allows a user to connect remotely to an ORIGIBOT from most any device which can run a Firefox or Chrome browser through a secure cloud service. The system uses WebRTC technology, a free, open project meant to provide browsers and mobile applications with "real-time communications" capabilities through a relatively simple set of APIs. WebRTC is supported by Google, Mozilla, and Opera, and the web interface from ORIGIBOT doesn't require additional plugins or java applets.
