At first glance you might think this is a fashionable Segway. Unlike a Segway, which acts as an electric human transporter, the Giraffe Video Conferencing Robot allows people to virtually transport themselves. The Giraffe is a remote-controlled mobile video conferencing platform that enables people who are far away to communicate face to face. You guessed it, no more solitaire and msn chats as your 'away on business' boss can easily sneak up behind you. Talking to a robot kinda freaks me out, although it would be fun for chatting with friends and family.

With a low price tag ranging from $1800 and $3000, you might see these purple monsters scooting around your office - ahhh!
