VGo Honorable Mention

If a child cannot physically attend school because of a chronic illness, this robot is a very good option. The robot is controlled via a device. The robot moves just like a student would. You can see and hear as if you are there. The student can talk to other students or teachers. The robot looks like something out of a science fiction movie. However, it works, is real and a great way to educate students with any number of issues.
