The MantaroBot™ TelePresence Robot is a mobile offsite-conferencing platform that is plugged into Skype™ and allows a user to remotely interact with and observe people and their environment. The telepresence system provides a level of interactivity which is not present with traditional “call-in” teleconferencing techniques. The user can move around the room and observe other meeting participants through a web camera, allowing more effective communication. The user will be able to see live presentations and demonstrations as well as the body language of others. Provided they have an Internet connection, any user can access the MantaroBot TelePresence Robot.
