Giraffe Robot Lets Your Boss Remotely Keep Tabs on the Office

Think you got it easy cause your boss ain't around? You better think twice. Designed by HeadThere, the Giraffe is a remote controlled mobile videoconferencing robot. It can be operated via the Internet by anyone who wants to see, talk, or interact with people far-away. The robot stands 5'8" tall and uses a 14-inch LCD with the image of its controller as its "face." It uses a wide-angle 2MP camera to "see" and communicates via its built-in speakers. It'll be out in 2007 for anywhere between $1,800 and $3,000, just don't expect your employees to be happy when they see a robotic version of you patrolling the office.
