UK student builds his own telepresence 'Sheldonbot'

PCWorld: A student at the University of Central Lancashire has created a telepresence robot that mimics human behavior.

Known as MAKIIS, the robot is inspired by the Sheldonbot from U.S. comedy "The Big Bang Theory." Moving on wheels and projecting a live video of the user's face via an iPad, MAKIIS can allow an office worker in London to chat with a colleague in Paris as if they were in the same room.
