This cute video-conferencing robot, called PEBBLES (Providing Education By Bringing Learning Environments to Students), is part of a research project being carried out in Canada involving Ryerson Polytechnic University, Telbotics and The University of Toronto.
The unit is designed to allow hospitalised children to attend school, and interact with their classmates and teachers. Inventor and Telbotics founder Graham Smith explained that "children's mental health affects their physical health".
He hopes to market a commercial version within the next year, which is expected to cost around #40,000.
