Interesting Guardian article:

'The worker you have to plug in'

IvanAnywhere doesn't look like much, but the robot devised by Ivan Bowman
makes remote working and interacting with his colleagues much easier, says

In a similar vein, here's a video of a teleportec machine in
operation

Putting on my sf/futurist hat... its not hard to envision this being
coupled with voice recognition to build kiosks (or receptionists,
information desks.. etc)

Oh, and related to the other thread on 'definition of IxD'

If there is ever a virtual persona manning an information kiosk ala
teleportec or the IvanAnywhere machine. Creating one is a great
example of Interaction design, using standard(ish) methodologies
without -any- interface design.
