Ok I'm changing my guess to personal telepresence robot. The designer is into
bots that can climb stairs (he made that new wheelchair), and the quotes
imply it is an alternative to driving. Also they imply that cities/campuses
will have to be modified to support it... which is weird since if it is a
stair-climbing bot (even if not) why need to change anything? Separate road
lanes? The other issue is how do they get the data from it... wireless even
in Atlanta is limited to 128kbit max.
