    Verizon Staffs its CES Booth With People Who Aren't There


    No, this isn't a story about ghosts or an invisible man. Verizon demonstrated at their CES booth the ability to use their new VGo technology, a state-of-the-art robotic telepresence with embedded 4G LTE connectivity to replicate a remote person’s presence in their booth, enabling complete freedom of movement and interactive conversations with attendees. The technology is quite versatile and is already in use in various venues today. One notable example is Healthcare organizations using VGo to monitor patients, leading to higher levels of care and lower costs.

    Ultimately, the technology has a cornucopia of different uses, from board meetings with remote members, to helping special needs children attend school from home. Here's a quote from the press release, and you can read their full press release at the source link below:

    Peter N. Vicars, president and chief executive officer for VGo Communications said, “When you have a solution that is guided remotely, the wireless connectivity is unbelievably important – we don’t work without it. Using a wide-area, high-speed wireless network greatly expands the applications for VGo, and Verizon 4G LTE is the first service that meets the unique requirements of our real-time solution.”

    BURN! Dang Verizon you just gonna let him punk you like that!?

    That was exactly what I was thinking though; you walk up and instead of a person's face it's a white screen with "Sorry, temporarily out of order due to LTE outage." scrolling across it.
