The idea of telepresence robots is not new. They make connecting with others across the world more fun. Helios is a telepresence device for your iPhone. All you have to do is put your iPhone into the seat of Helios, and your friends and family members can stay in touch with you like never before. The device can be controlled remotely.
Your friends will not only be able to see you but also move with you. This is perfect for those who are in distant relationships and want to keep up with their loved ones. It has its benefits for businesses too. Helios is based on Arduino Nano and will include the original code. With this, you can build additional sensors, motors, and anything else you can think of. This exciting project is being funded through Kickstarter.
What’s your take? Good idea?
