roborig_gear

In Maker Faire Rome, we will present our most recent project: Roborig – a telepresence robot that enables users to feel immersed in a remote, augmented reality.

Telepresence, refers to the technology that enables the feeling of being present in a remote location, is finally becoming an accessible possibility, at least visually, thanks to the combination of 360-videos and virtual reality headsets such as Oculus Rift. Our project aims to  enrich this experience by including stereo vision, depth information, mixed reality, and hand-tracking to enable practical telepresence applications.

Our exhibit is located in A21 (pav. 7). Come and visit us with Roborig!!
