My dream was to create tools that would help connect and engage people in ways we had yet to discover. Robotics was a personal passion – one that I set aside ten years ago for dotcoms, telecoms, politics, teaching and e-commerce. In November of 2009, I got a chance to join the robotics world once again in a way that could change the future of how we work – by shifting where we work. And that future is remote presence.
After re-engaging in robotics with Willow Garage with the Texai project, I saw my enthusiasm for robotics rekindled and have been keeping an eye out for how remote presence will become a reality. After I finished my project, I did not want the insights I had generated to fade off. So I decided to use this site share my new-found knowledge and to chronicle the growth and development of this space.
