Suitable Technologies $16,000 Beam Video Robot Lets A ‘Virtual’ You Lurk Around The Office And Attend Meetings.

Suitable Technologies BeamThe goal of Suitable Technologies $16,000 Beam is to connect people separated by distance. And to Jubbling, cutting back on air travel is a good thing.

But could a robot rolling around a remote office really be that effective? Probably not. Like the other remotely controlled video camera & screen robot, I see the unnecessary Beam getting teased, laughed at and eventually put on a treadmill in the remote office’s supply closet. Just sayin. [Wired]
