I'm glad this works for him.

I think this is great. It gives him the feeling of actually being in school since he can interact with the teacher. It's better than online schooling where he only sees written text.

Long distance education here is done on-line, seems to me less costly and more practical.

Interesting, but with the advent of full online schools I wonder if this robot technology has already been surpassed. Also, at least in US schools, I have to think that a robot moving around in the hallways between classes would be a constant target for pranks and would likely rarely make it to its next class unscathed unless it was equipped with a 360 degree field of vision with recording!

I'd like to see the operator's face on there, not just audio output. The base station camera should be within his own screen, so that he can center it between the eyes of someone he is speaking with for the most natural experience. I'd put the robot face screen on a "neck" that could extend up to normal walking height, reach around to look closely at things, bow to Japanese, and rest at normal sitting height.
I think there is a great market to rent these at conferences and trade exhibitions, to save on air travel. It might be nice to include a small printer for business cards and notes.

Thanks Chris. I bet there is a market here in the US for the green fellow.
