Tablebot (Tbo) is a situated robot that responds to voice commands, connecting to other objects and the Internet. Tbo's most useful feature is its ability to allow users to interact with others, projecting onto flat surfaces to create telepresence experiences that are less "Skype on a stick" and more embodied and immersive.
