Research Professor Ilhan Bae of the Moon Soul Graduate School of Future Strategy at KAIST created a life-size humanoid telepresence robot on a drone platform, which allows users a virtual flight experience and an opportunity to interact with people at remote locations.
“As a futurist, I forecast that drone technology will soon evolve to become another body for humans, and I wanted to demonstrate this potential application of drones. Avatar drones are especially useful for people who need to meet or manage other people face to face in remote locations,” he said.
For example, when elderly people with physical disabilities want to engage in social gatherings, this avatar drone can certainly help them just do that.
