Suitable Tech shows off Beam — remote telepresence device


SuitableTech came by during CES in Las Vegas to show off its Beam. The name may be a bit vague in describing what the product is, but it s rather cool technology.

In a nutshell, this is a remote telepresence device, though many would likely simply refer to it as a robot. The device is mounted on wheels and has a display screen on the top. It can then move around to various people and allow for face to face communications with someone in a remote location. The device promises an eight-hour battery life. Beam is not really for home use, as you’re looking at a $20,000 install, but it will be handy in many business situations. You can find out more by visiting SuitableTech.
