vGo demonstrates an excellent use of remote presence

Into the inbox comes another great link to a story about Lyndon Baty who suffers from Polycystic Kidney Disease and has virtually no immune system. Instead of staying at home, avoiding interaction, vGo is affording Lyndon the chance to be present with his classmates in his high school.

See the video below:

You can see the original video and story at his home newspaper site: Knox City Freshman Goes to Class
See vGo’s Press Release: Homebound Student attends Class via Vgo

You can see that the vGo works quite well for the purpose of Lyndon, giving him access to the world outside of his home – and weeks from now, it will be very interesting to revisit his high-school and ask his friends what they think. Specifically on how he interacts with his classmates and his teachers – after the novelty has worn off.
