Avatar Robots Open New Doors
A man bedridden by a genetic disorder. Another paralyzed by a fall. For such people with severe disabilities, avatar robots are opening new doors. They're controlled remotely over the internet, and speak in the voices of their human operators. Their creator was once a social recluse who's working to give the homebound new opportunities. His efforts include a pop-up café where disabled people serve customers, using the avatars. See how humans and robots are working together toward a brighter future.
