At TEDxTwenteU, Merijn Bruijnes talks about the *Bot project. A project investigating the impact of telepresence robots in everyday life. The project deals with the opportunities and the social, ethical, and technical issues that come forward when we start using these `Skype on wheels’-robots in our every-day lives.

Merijn Bruijnes is a PhD student Human Media Interaction at the University of Twente.
