Can't fly across the country? Don't want to get out of bed? As part of the Gizmodo Home of the Future, we'll see how you'll soon be sending your telepresence robot to your meetings instead.

Join us for some one-on-one time with the new you from Double Robotics to see just how easily your robot avatar will mesh with your coworkers. You'll be able to interact with and operate the robot during this demo—no matter how far away you are.

If you want an invite via email to connect to the telepresence robot, send an email to and she will send you instruction. You must be using Chrome to access it.
