#VGo "is as much fun as it is practical and useful. A lean, stylish robot, about 4 feet tall, rolls quietly to the patient's chair or bedside, controlled via Wi-Fi through a remote PC. The doctor and patient can see and hear each other in Hi-Def resolution. The distant doctor can control pan, tilt and zoom of the robot's camera."

For sure Jesus... just what the +Cali Lewis doctor ordered for keeping any eye on those in need as well as keeping the spirits up for the actual doctor by creating a separation barrier to help filter out the patients negativity and pain.  The same concept is taking place in the customer service field with virtual attendant apps.  Next we will see the likes of +John Pozadzides utilize this notion in the entertainment field.  For example think of +Sandra Annette Bullock licensing her prerecorded compassion and witty personality in such a way as to personalize a cheer up experience for the patient who's profile analytic's  are matched with their age, gender, religious and sexual preferences.  This forecast is a notion or futurist RayKurtzweil of the Singularity Institute.  I see Nicole Olson as a very qualified spokesperson for VGo and the competition(s).  I can't see how such an obvious application of this tech can actually claim any intellectual rights whatsoever.  I can rig this up from scratch for the price of a good bedtime story.  Just goes to show the corruption involved in the Patent Office of America.

Twelve year old Zach has a rare medical condition and is attending school for the first time with a #VGo Robotic #Telepresence Device. Says his mother: "He was proud. He said that he saw the classroom and the robot moved. It was like he was there. He was just very proud of himself and felt very grown up and part of something, part of something in the classroom." Tonya said she believes her son has a future in a career with computers or architecture. She said while his body is an obstacle, his mind is sharp. VGo is honored to be a part of this boy's life!

Of course, VGo has many other uses aside from filling in for the chronically truant. Students or workers with disabilities, for instance, can send VGo in their place to class or events. Doctors can also make use of robotic telepresence. A specialist working with a patient across the country, for instance, can use VGo to remotely examine patients or to visit a lab.

VGo replicates a person in a distant location. See, hear, talk and move around as if you were there. For healthcare workers, specialists and doctors, students, remote experts, and visitors in healthcare, education, development and business.
Introduction
VGo is a productivity improvement solution that enables a person to replicate themself in a distant location and have the freedom to move around as if they were physically there. With VGo, you can see, hear, talk, interact, and go anywhere. VGo is not a traditional videoconferencing/telepresence solution where two or more people meet using specially equipped rooms or PCs in their offices.  With VGo, you are completely independent of the people in the distant location – it’s 100% remote controlled.  You don’t make a call – you just go there – your presence is established remotely via VGo’s physical presence.
