Telepresence In A Museum

I’ve only been writing this blog for about 4 years now but it’s still enough time for some of my predictions to come true.

One of the big technologies I think will change world is telepresence. Using cheap robots controlled remotely, students will be able to explore the world from home (or the classroom). Well, that is now happening.

H/T Gizmodo

Remember way back in February when we reported that this summer you’d be able to remotely control robots to explore the Tate Britain After Dark Well—it’s (finally) this summer, and now’s your chance! Starting this very minute, you can check out the live footage of four bots gone wild—and sign up to make them move from the comfort of your laptop.

Here’s the video

Very very cool stuff! I think this sort of thing will spread as the technology gets cheaper. I think I need to add a tag and category for this.
