Tele-commuting by Robot

What's better than telecommuting? Sending a robot to work in your place. This story mentioned in Ecogeek and other places on the web came from reporter, Matt Walcoff, at The Record in Waterloo. The robot, called "Ivan Anywhere," can write software, attend meetings and chat with co-workers. It's really primitive, just a "coat rack on wheels with speakers, camera and touch-screen computer," but consider the possibilities!

Just going to meetings would be worth it! Imagine how much America could get done! He can be reprogrammed if you find he's spending too much time hanging out in the breakroom, chatting it up with his other robot friends.

In real world situations, this may be an avenue for persons with disabilities to work from home, yet interact with co-workers.
