Double Robotics' Robot Puts Virtual Teleportation at Your Fingertips

Today's exciting modern technology comes with plenty of old-fashioned hand-wringing. Kids don't play outside anymore! Texting has replaced talking! You can't sit through a civilized dinner without somebody spending the evening with his face buried in his iPhone!

If you're a Luddite who hates these modern trends, get ready for your next space-age nightmare. If, on the other hand, you accept these situations as side-effects of a world evolving for the better, get ready to totally geek out.

Tech company Double Robotics -- with its spokesperson, Coral Gables native actress Romina -- has created a robotic iPad extension that lets you virtually transport yourself to far-away locations via your touchscreen.
