MIT’s MeBot

Although many researchers are working with telepresence, this project has me thinking how different it might be. Siggi, a PhD student at MIT is developing MeBot, a robot that gestures as you do.

Imagine sitting in a meeting with a robot like this in front of you.  As the person on the other end moves their eyes or hands, the robot mimics that movements while displaying a video of their face.  It would be difficult to ignore.
