Robot avatars are here, working from home will take on new meaning

The Telesar V can move in seven different directions, and it has joints just like humans do. Coolest of all, the sensors on the Telesar's hands are sensitive enough (and high-tech enough!) to relay texture at a level advanced enough to determine a smooth surface or something bumpy like a LEGO. You can check out a video of the robot; you won't be able to deny its awesomeness.
