The Double Robotics is essentially wheels for the iPad. A motorized tablet stand, it not only allows people to multitask easier and more conveniently when simultaneously on their device, it also makes a person's virtual presence more concrete. When video conferencing a colleague, friend or family member, the Double Robotics provides a familiar height for the moving head that allows people to better pretend like they are really there in person.

Controlled by a touch-based interface, the Double Robotics is also equipped with an accelerometer and gyroscope to keep the 10 inch wide robot stable when it is on the move. When stopped, a dual kickstand is released to ensure that the Double Robotics doesn't double over. Efficient and lightweight, the stand doesn't need to be charged until the end of the day.
