The Conference Attendee Of The Future

Why I Decided To Become A Cyborg

Is this the conference attendee of the future?

It looks like a smart phone attached to a Segway. It’s a video conferencing robot that can be controlled from anywhere in the world.

Imagine this: a remote conference attendee navigating the conference venue, interacting with colleagues, roaming the exhibit hall and performing a wide range of tasks. It’s the next best thing to being there physically, walking the show floor and attending the sessions.

Watch this video of the Masie Center’s VGO robot, MC Robo, as it navigates their headquarters.


Could this be the conference attendee of the future? Would we call it a hybrid attendee?

How do you see mobility devices like VGO impacting conferences and events? What opportunities can you see for conferences and events with VGOs?
