Double, The Ultimate Tool For Telecommuting
With Double you have a physical presence in the office and can speak to co-workers at anytime from anywhere in the world. It is a remotely controlled, mobile teleconferencing system, enabling conversations to happen anywhere and anytime.
Double enables a revolutionary new level of interaction with your remote team. 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 in the office means you can be free to roam around anywhere without having to schedule a meeting. Double 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 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.
Founded in 2011, Double Robotics is focused on building beautiful products with a rich user experience that is seldomly found in the field of robotics. Recently backed by the prestigious Y Combinator startup accelerator, Double Robotics began shipping its iPad-based telepresence robot in May 2013.
The founders include David Cann, an experienced designer and iOS developer, and Marc DeVidts, an electrical/embedded systems engineer. Operated out of Sunnyvale, California, the company fabricates many of its robot components from manufacturers around the US.
