    Glad you did this video, the way you did it, and you summarized it accurately

    Now can they stop making this. There is facetime, skype, and tons of other apps that are in one's phone, tablet, and desktop/laptop. What would be the point?

    I used a robot to bring democracy to the middle east.

    But then my robot was in the sky, the controls in the US, and communications relayed through Germany. Because fuck brown people.

    Oh, you're American? Naah, don't care about you either.

    "I'd hate to use this thing as a boss and try to tell someone off"  I would have lost it if you rolled over to that girls and been like "Rebecca, your fired"

    Emergencies or special occasions/relationships sounds about right. Its fair. This isn't the 'telepresence' we're looking for, but at least its a step forward with it.
