What better way to sell a product than a working in-store demonstration? That's the ideology of Suitable Technologies, which is using its telepresence robots in its Palo Alto, California-based store. The retail location is a live demonstration of the Beam Remote Presence System, featuring a wheeled base and two support beams for a screen.
The telepresence technology, which costs $20,000 - with a $2,000 consumer version available - also includes Wi-Fi radios, cameras and microphones.
