Stay away from meetings with iRobot Ava 500 telepresence bot

iRobot Ava 500 telepresence bot

iRobot wants to help you stay away from work meetings, a sentiment we can all applaud.

Trundling along on the heels — or wheels — of its RP-VITA medical robot, the AVA 500 was introduced Monday by the company as an enterprise-grade telepresence robot.

Developed with Cisco’s TelePresence technology, the autonomously navigating machine is like a large, rolling webcam that lets remote users take part in “meetings and presentations where movement and location spontaneity are important.”

Ava 500 incorporates a Cisco TelePresence EX60 21.5-inch HD screen on a full-size platform that can roll along through places like plants, laboratories, or customer experience centers.

Users control the bot with an iPad, tapping a map location where they want to send it, and it drives itself there. Their face can be displayed on the screen while the robot moves around, or it can be set to “private” mode so the screen is blank.

En route, the machine can stop for an impromptu chat with someone, and will automatically return to its charging station when the meeting is over.

Officially called a “video collaboration robot,” the Ava 500 will join many competing telepresence platforms when it becomes available (to Cisco partners) in early 2014.

Will it become the Roomba of the office? Telepresence is still a foreign concept to most companies, but its ability to eliminate costly, inefficient travel will likely see more and more businesses adopting the tech in the next five years.

  2. Can One lose my serious buyer deposit basically out of the contract? I might be losing $3,500. I’m just one mother which has saved the cash during the last four years and residing in terrible living conditions in order to save the cash.

    All of this begins in September, my boyfriend and that i look for a home we love to having a real estate agent. We expressed interest in your home and allow the real estate agent know we would have liked to position a invest in it. The house was listed at 119,999.00 so we tell him we wish to offer 115k using the seller adding towards the closing cost. He doesn’t place the offer inside a contract but states he’s going to vocally speak with the customer and find out when they need it. Which should happen to be our first warning sign, but we’re new only at that out on another question that. He calls back 20 min later saying the customer has another offer for that selling price. Within our euphoric condition we up our offer to 125k with 5k likely to closing cost after which draft anything, the real estate agent was adamant having a DEPOSIT OF $3,500(a really large quantities). The vendor accepts, why wouldn’t they… lol Well the following day the vendor amends several things around the contract like the times of inspection going from 5 to three which they’ll be since the title cost as well as an earlier closing date. We sign this crazy factor! There’s an inspection done around the property also it returns about $2,800 in things that should be fixed around the 3rd day. We allow the real estate agent know we aren’t too happy about this and that he states he’ll see what he is able to do. Actually we simply have three days to have an inspection period. Does he tell us this will be our last day to get away from anything, NO why would he do this. We obtain the comps for that place days later (we practically needed to beg the real estate agent) plus they don’t are designed so 🙁 Apparently a house in the same location having a pool and renovated bathroom and kitchen offered for 138k, and our place have to be repaired with no pool. Well at this time we’re feeling duped and search for anything to get away from this. We discover a little mistake within the contract it states we are investing in 123,000 within an escrow at closing as well as in another part it states we’re financing. We inform them that that’s an error and we’ll not amend anything so it is null and void. Apparently they are saying it’s not which is when all of this starts. Description of how the want all of the deposit so we want it too too. We made a deal for them to stay it for 1,ooo however they still wish to whole factor! Now it might finish in Florida Real-Estate Commotion and that i have no clue how to proceed.

    Please knowing something that may help please tell me.

    The closing date was on 10/12 so we didn’t undergo with finishing the financial lending paperwork. Also this real estate agent is the owner of the company. It is simply him. He keeps asking us to buy another home so when we and when therefore we only required to offer them 1,000 to obtain the relaxation from the deposit back. After I told him I had been no more wanted to obtain a house he stated which i would need to offer more income towards the seller basically wanted it not to visit the Florida Real-estate commotion. Just how can they still cause me to feel go ahead and take house? Omg!

    Thanks Sooo MUCH!!! Thank you for making the effort to see this and reacting. The final couple days have really been a heart wrenching here we are at me.
