So, outsourcing human contact by using remotely operated pet avatars on tablets given to elderly patients. Notably, the avatars are remotely monitored and sometimes directly operated by a callcenter in the Philippines. Because human contact is now a luxury good...

iBorderCtrl? No! |
So the EU is considering a highly invasive border control scheme for Schengen access, likely resulting in an app visitors need to download to their phone. Also an "AI" interview, using the high quality of phone camera to monitor facial flushing/bloodflow/heartbeat detection to do some lie detection during the "interview" with the avatar.

First disclosure of images taken by the JEM Kibo's internal drone "Int-Ball" :Experiment - International Space Station - JAXA
JAXA's cute version of SPHERES I think, to provide remote video support controllable by mission control/ground supervisors to watch astronaut work

KUBI - the robotic stand for iPads and tablets | Indiegogo
The 80% telepresence solution, a self pivoting tablet stand for videoconferencing. Since most meetings don't need the telepresence user to move within the room or leave the room.

Suitable Technologies
New Beam telepresence robot avatar. Nice overall design, has a charger dock that uses inductive charging so precise alignment or hard docking clamps are not needed. Still, it doesn't seem to have screen/camera height adjustment to work with sitting people at the remote site, and it doesn't seem to have autohoming features for the robot to return for self charge as they seem to expect the pilot to drive back (no SLAM map to guide the user back to the dock?).

Double Robotics - Wheels for your iPad
A lot less chunky compared to the iRobot tablet mount telepresence avatar, but naturally has some limitations, such as a lack of autonomous recharger location wayfinding and self recharge via a dock.

Welcome to Penguin Automated Systems
Company specializing in remote control underground mining vehicles and equipment. Apparently a Dr.Greg Baiden has prototypes for a wireless optical high bandwidth communications system for underground remote mining operations (necessary for the high bandwidth/resolution video feeds to remote control mining vehicles and equipment). Long term aim is to use this with ROV/AUV underwater subs to cut the tether.

DigInfo TV - TEROOS - Shoulder-mounted Telecommunication Avatar
An interesting shoulder surfing concept for a telepresence robot, as a kind of second set of eyes, or as a handy on-call expert. If there's enough bandwidth, this could be usable for disasters, allowing first responders to consult with experts offsite, allowing the experts to "ride-along" and rather conveniently solves the mobility issues with a lot of telepresence robot avatars.

InTouch Health Telemedicine Technology for Remote Presence
Apparently HeadThere, a startup doing a telepresence avatar robot, got into a legal dustup with these guys over telepresence robot avatar patents. Apparently they settled out of court in such a way that HeadThere can complete prototypes and do dev work, but are barred from selling anything in the US (well, assuming they don't want to fork over patent licensing fees). Sucks to be them, but the world market is still plenty big, assuming In Touch doesn't try to bring down a WIPO international patent hammer.

iRobot: Communication Robots
Somebody was saying something interesting, about making a remote avatar robot that would last a day on batteries and be rentable. There might be an associated avatar taxi service/bot retrieval van to get you to specific destinations. Probably go the GSM 3G route, with opportunistic WiFi tunneling.
