Do you want to work from home but still be involved in all the important meetings and not miss the chat in the coffee room? Now there's a solution!
The Californian company Double Robotics has developed what is known as a telepresence robot. A simple explanation is that it is a Segway with a tablet that is controlled from a mobile phone, which means that the user can move around freely in the office and talk to colleagues and customers. Does that sound like a practical joke? Well, it isn't. One company that has already implemented the invention is the Swedish advertising agency DDB Stockholm, which purchased the robot when one of its employees moved to Hong Kong. For companies with staff located in all four corners of the world, there is naturally enormous potential when there is a need to quickly put together the best team.
