Using a Robot to Virtually Attend School
There are many people in the world for whom, for various reasons, it is impossible to leave the house or hospital. This means these people are not able to go to work or school. The VGo is the solution for those people.
Seven-year-old Devon Carrow Sperduti from Buffalo, New York is such a boy. He suffers from deadly allergies so he cannot leave his house. A single day at school could kill him. Thanks to VGo, Devon can still attend school. Devon can control the VGo from his laptop at home to follow lessons and interact with his friends.
Via a webcam Devon can see what is happening in the classroom and hear what is being told. If a question is asked to the class, Devon can flash a light to show he knows the answer. During the break, he can even play with his classmates in the schoolyard. For the children, the robot is a virtual Devon.
The VGo can be the solution for international business. It is no longer necessary to have a long expensive flight to attend a meeting or conference. The VGo gives you the ability to freely move around and truly interact with people and the environment.
