The Ultimate Tool For Telecommuting
Double 2 is the world's leading telepresence robot. Double 2 helps telecommuters feel more connected to their colleagues by giving them a physical presence in the office, classroom, or conference.
Traditional videoconferencing is arguably the most important tool used by telecommuters in the workplace today. However, remote workers know how difficult it can be to schedule a call or ask someone to set up a laptop for video chat.
Having your own Double 2 in the office means you can be free to roam around anywhere without having to schedule a meeting. Double 2 takes everything you love about video calls on an iPad and puts that on a mobile base that puts the remote worker in control. Your Double 2 is always on, ready to take you anywhere you need to go.
Employers can rest assured that their remote employees never miss out on important conversations around the workplace.
The Double 2 incorporates several enhancements and improvements over the previous model, designed to provide a more immersive and stronger link between the user and the double. Lateral Stability Control is powered by a shock absorption mechanism in the base of the robot and helps maintain and improve lateral stability, providing an improved ability to traverse common office or classroom obstacles, such as cords and thresholds between carpeted and uncarpeted floors. LSC is an internally-designed, patent-pending technology found on only on the Double 2. Power Drive enables Double to go 80% faster than normal driving speed - perfect for covering a long distance quickly. Kickstand deployment time has also been decreased.
The Camera Kit is available as an optional accessory and includes a 150 degree wide-angle lens that increases field of view by 70% on each side. Users can take 5MP photos (vs 1.2MP standard) and always-on Floor View allows for increased spatial awareness. Adaptive HD automatically selects high frame rate when you're moving and high resolution when you're still. The Camera Kit is backwards-compatible with the original ouble (as are all Double 2 accessories), and charges from the Double's battery.
