I'm working from home myself as we speak (looking after my wife who is recovering from an operation) -- I hadn't even thought about this, but having a VGo in my office while I'm here (or here while I'm in my office) would be GREAT.
In the latter case I would know when my son got home from school, and he could tell me if he wanted me to pick anything up from the store...
I think these could be a lot more useful than I first supposed...
Sorry, Max reminded me that I forgot the disclosure: I actually work for VGo (Software Architect/Lead Developer). But I do actually eat my own dog food and work from home 2 days a week. My VGo sits outside of my cube on its charger, and I try to stay in a call for most of the day with my audio/video muted for my own privacy. If anybody needs me, they just walk up to it and say "Hey Jeff, are you there?" Then I just un-mute and can follow them to their cube or a conference room. If I need to talk to somebody, I don't need to hope they're paying attention to their IM/email or even at their desk. I can just drive around looking for them.
p.s. Max, you can always contact our sales/marketing to see if you could get a unit for review (but being in Engineering, I couldn't say one way or the other ;-)
Very tasty -- but how do we know that it's you posting this and not your VGo?
For all we know your VGo has you tied up in the chair with a gag around your mouth, and it's now sending messages out to everyone it can to get it's cousins placed in all our homes :-)
Seriously, I would love to play with one of these little rascals :-)
There's also VGo, at under $6,000. I'm using a VGo to work from home right now!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
