What good would an innovation center launch be without some fun concept pieces to show off? The VGo, an LTE-enabled robotic telepresence unit, is operated by Gulay Kurt (pictured on the robot's screen) out of the LTE Innovation Center. Kurt controls the bot's mobility with controls on her end, as well as the camera angle and lights. The VGo unit can take photos and video. It could be used as a classroom stand-in for a home-bound student, or as an extra pair of eyes to monitor a building's security, to name two scenarios.
