Oh don’t worry, I’ve already alerted your older sister and all of her cheerleading friends.
MIDbot is an ultra low cost tele-present and an easy to use Internet Remote Monitoring Robot with interactive robot arm, allows one to control the robot remotely and globally, with real time video through the common video chatting software Skype or others.
