The HeadThere Giraffe telepresence robot is back, after getting chased out of the US due to a legal settlement, and reinvented as a remote health monitoring system for the elderly sponsored by the EU.

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.
