Have you been following the recent news stories on robots (not to mention drones)? There were a couple over the last few weeks: one, called, Jibo, is a home companion; the other, Botlr, is used in hotels to deliver items to guest rooms. I don’t know about you but these things kind of freak me out. Having said that, I can’t avoid thinking about how they can be used as digital signage display platforms.
When I talked about “passive persistent presence” the other day I never thought about robots that could literally chase you down a hallway. Maybe I should change it to “active persistent presence.”
