Telepresence robot delivers corporate messages while you relax remotely

Most robots rolled out today are long on futuristic aesthetics, but fall short on practicality, such is not the case with the immediately accessible Jazz telepresence and telesurveillance robot.

Designed by France's Gostai, the regular Jazz Connect ($10,400) is suited for providing support for businesses, while the Jazz Security ($11,000) will watch your home or office while you're away. Adding a customizable aspect to the unit, the robot runs on the company's open source Urbi software. You can see the robot in action in the video below.
