Anybots - Revolutionizing Business Communication Around the World!

Commuting may be one of the most loathed chores in human existence. It is an act totally devoid of any fun, excitement or meaning. You get in a car and endure a tedious drive alongside several thousand of your fellow commuters. But what if you could avoid all that by sending someone to work in your place. That is the idea behind Anybots new telepresence robot named “QB”. 

The robot may look like the lovechild of a roomba and a mic stand, but the QB has tremendous potential. It uses a video camera, still camera and speaker/mic to remotely interact with with anyone in range of a wi-fi signal. That means an engineer in Chicago can oversee production in a factory in Japan without having to travel there. The robot can be remotely controlled from any computer and sends live streaming video back to the user. It also allows the user to talk back and forth through the QB. The robot even projects the users voice like a live telephone connection. That means people can manage projects, attend meetings and collaborate with colleagues without ever boarding an airplane. The QB gives them a robotic presence anywhere in the world. More importantly, the robot is unobtrusive enough to work in any office. at 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing about 35 pounds, It is a big improvement over its heavy, cumbersome predecessors. That means people will not be forced to dive out of the way every time the QB rolls by. The robot even has an 8 hour battery life, the same length as a normal work day. This makes it invaluable in todays global marketplace. Trevor Blackwell, CEO of Anybots, says the $15,000 QB will be in every major office in silicon valley within a year. It ships in Fall, 2010, so don’t be to surprised if the next person you find looking over your shoulder is doing so from across the globe.
