Double by Double Robotics: Wheels For Your iPad [video]

The Double Robot is a unique robot that mounts an iPad atop a motorized stand, letting you see, hear, and move about far-away environments using nothing but an iPad on the other end.

A touch-based interface makes controlling the Double a breeze, while an accelerometer and gyroscope work to keep the 10″-wide robot stable until you’re done moving it, at which point dual kickstands pop out to let the battery take a rest. Welcome to the future.

The Double Robot is going to ship early next year, but pre-orders ( $2000 ) are available now at the official website
