This robot that goes to school for sick kids who can't
When children are sick and away from school, it's not just the lessons they're missing out on. It's also the social interaction with their fellow students.
So AV1 not only allows the child a 360-degree-view of the classroom, as well as being able to listen live to the class, it also allows the child to speak back - as either a question to the class or a conspiratorial whisper to a classmate.
So far, there are several hundred children using AV1, mostly in Norway. But the international reach is expanding, Karen says.
