Second-grade robot

Homebound by severe allergies, Devon Carrow participates in second grade at a New York elementary school via robot. His classmates think it’s no big deal.

VGo Communications‘ 4-foot-tall robot with a wireless video hookup lets Devon “participate in class, stroll through the hallways, hang out at recess and even take to the auditorium stage when there’s a show,” reports AP. “In a class of 7-year-olds raised on video games, avatars and remote-controlled toys, they don’t see a robot. They just see Devon.”
