Great article and interesting new device (I would love to take it for a test drive).  I'm already a user of WebEx and Skype and find these tools indispensible for virtual meetings with other off-site members of our teams.  I think this new device will only help to improve the virtual experience in the future.

Great article, I definitely see manufacturing as an area where TelePresence could have a significant impact: cutting cost and reducing downtime.  Especially in companies that have a global footprint.

Would be great to have a follow-up article covering other products that are out there that are targeting the manufacturing space, especially new companies like Collaborate i/o (http://collaborate.io).
