Tasha McCauley on the power of exponential technologies

2013, Science & Technology
Presented By:

Tasha McCauley, professional in design and prototype building, talks about the telepresence robot Helo, “a tablet-based web control robot…that extends human capabilities through state-of-the-art Telepresence technologies.”  She describes the day that had she and her colleagues went to a hardware and an electronics store, and in eight hours cobbled together a few store-bought components to make the first rough telepresence robot, the forerunner of Helo. Eventually they will develop a modular sensor-set system so that people can customize robots for as yet unimagined purposes.
