Checking into CES 2015 remotely this year through a will.i.am robot was none other than one of the members of the Black Eyed Peas. As the Chief Creative Officer of 3D system Beam, the celebrity made sure to get in on the action at the event.

In previous years, will.i.am has been recognized as one of the most present celebrity faces at the Consumer Electronics Show. Beaming in to the show, through the telepresence robot will.i.am connected with CES visitors about the latest technology. This included dialogues on innovative products like the Ekocycle Cube, a 3D printer will.i.am developed last year in collaboration with Coca-Cola, turning used plastic pop bottles into recycled phone cases.

As the creator of projects like this and more, like the Puls smartwatch and the i.am+ foto.soho phone case, this is likely not the last time will.i.am will make his presence known at CES, by robot or not.
