Double Robotics Two Wheeled Telepresence Robot


After seeing the 'Double' from Double Robotics, we instantly thought of the episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon decides he's not leaving the apartment and creates a "Mobile Virtual Presence Device" aka Shel-bot.

The Double is a two-wheeled telepresence robot with a iPad mounted at eye level (essentially a robotic iPad dock on wheels) controlled via second iPad.


Double is the simplest, most elegant way to be somewhere else in the world without flying there. The minimalist design and intuitive touchscreen controls allow you to freely move around without inconveniencing others. You can stay at eye level, whether sitting or standing, by adjusting your height remotely, which makes conversations fluid and real. Retractable kickstands will automatically deploy to conserve power when you are not moving around. Efficient motors and lightweight design give Double the ability to last all day without recharging the battery.
