Ava 500 by iRobot and Cisco is a Robot with a Difference

Ava 500 by iRobot and Cisco is a Robot with a Difference
 
 

Robots have shifted from the imagination and fantasies of the wild and wooly thinkers to the very real world of offices and homes. Take the Ava 500, a robot with a difference that allows video conferences to take place from its portal and is ideal for business meetings. iRobot Corp. and Cisco TelePresence together build this marvelous robot.


The early 90s at MIT saw several science projects that culminated in the iRobot and the rest is history. Robots have taken up space alongside humans and are busy welding and painting cars at industrial plants as well as cleaning the carpets in residential estates. These nifty electronic contraptions have entered every enterprise and are even giving human beings a case of unemployment fever.

The scenario has scary spinoffs which reek of dystopia. It might be that one day machines will win against man in a battle that will shift the balance of the planet. But that is too far off to contemplate right now. For now at least, the iRobot company has produced the video collaboration robot called Ava 500. The three-letter prefix stands for Avatar. This baby made of bits and bytes is quite different from the Roomba, its long distance relative. It is shaped like a person with the only difference being that it has wheels underneath it and can present the live moving picture of a person on its screen. Thus video conferencing has been made easy between employees and bosses. Besides an HDTV screen it has a map inside that allows it to navigate the office terrain with ease.

Shipments will have to wait for a year or more since the prototype needs a little tweaking and last minute details.  It is a really wonderful device that is for the elite business coterie. Small time enterprises will have to do without it for a while. The technology is on the leading edge and offers the best that money can buy. For those who think it was a cinch to manufacture, the only advice would be to think twice! It took half a dozen prototypes before the real thing was reached in construction efforts. The whole procedure was followed in order to create a brand new realistic experience the likes of which has never been seen before. There is even an edition meant to be used in hospitals. The original vacuum robot was just the start of a journey that will never end. It will take us into unknown territory that will change the very nature of change itself.
