Video chat has become common in today’s world, especially in the workplace. Robotics, though, still has a tendency to sound a bit futuristic. Beam, however, has found a way to combine the two, with a robot that sports a video display, allowing for both face-to-face chat and mobility.
All of this functionality is controlled by the person seen on the screen, who controls the robot from a desktop or laptop computer. This is done by an app the company provides to the buyer for installation on any computer. The Beam, which comes from Suitable Technologies, is available right now. It’s geared towards corporate use, as the price comes in at $16,000, but that includes setup and support.
