Teleconsultation Robot

While writing Book 2, I needed a mobile robot body for my AI to reside in while seeing patients before surgery. Luckily I knew of several existing systems and some new research in this area. I combined the tech from the InTouch telepresence robot, which is used in hundreds fo hospitals, with some research on 3D image projection into a “head sphere” that is going on at UCF in the lab of Dr. Greg Welch. Right now, the head-thing is kind of gimmicky, but I figure by 2051, it will be perfected and awesome. So together those form the “Teleconsult” robot that projects the face of an awesomely handsome surgeon.
