The idea looks fun, but I have to wonder what it would be like to be working in an office where robots approach you routinely to teleconference with their alter-ago. Perhaps some day these will allow attorneys to make it quickly from one hearing to another in record time: You could go live to deposition A, and send your robot to hearing B. "Thank you, your honor. Ronald Schoedel, by robot, appearing for plaintiff." I want one.
