Remote controlled telepresence with iPhone
Robotic telepresence (RTP) is the future. It gives you the ability to transport yourself to a remote location, move around, look about, interact with people or objects from your PC or mobilephone whereever in the world without being there.
A creative example combinding an iPhone with a mobile robot comes out of Japan. The iPhone is rigged to a mobile base and connects to MacBook Air over WiFi.
