In the days before we launched our show, in 2009, I used ‘desktop virtualization’ software to guest host (out of LA) for a Boston show, and it was very interesting! Of course, at the pace of change we are experiencing, things have advanced significantly since then! We now have ‘virtual presence’ being made easy, in the classroom, workplace and almost anywhere, with flexible robots and computers! Imagine remote-controlling a rolling robot that shows you all that it sees and allows you to interact with others – who are there at the remote site! Think about people in hospitals, in remote locations, and pregnant students! It’s virtually a whole new world out there – with extended reach – and we’ll explore it today, when we go Beyond The Norm!
