We are big fans of telepresense here at I Heart Robotics, and believe that it may become the primary means of travel after we run out of oil, the glaciers melt and the zombie plague forces the last of the human survivors into hiding. It will certainly be easier than crossing the Great Iowan Desert on foot.
However we never considered the idea of making telepresense accessible to robots, but in a way it makes perfect sense. Robots are naturally capable of multitasking so they should be even more productive by being able to work in multiple locations at once.
