The VGo telepresence robot was a favorite of the booth. The robot acts as a proxy for someone who can't physically be somewhere, whether it be because of distance or a medical reason. It has a monitor to show the face of the person, as well as a camera and microphone so that person can see and hear everything VGo can. That person can control where the robot can go. VGo has been out with Wi-Fi for a year, but an LTE version was announced at the show.

Mimi, who was controlling the robot from Boston, was around to greet convention-goers on the VGo telepresence robot.

Like something out of Star Trek, the Golden-I displays a small screen using a special visor. It's ideal for tapping into camera feeds or looking up diagnostic manuals while repairing cars or other gadgets. The device is voice controlled, so you're hands are free to do other things. The device is made by Kopin and Motorola Solutions.

The 1-inch display actually does a good job of showing what was on the screen.

The monitor allows doctors to remotely diagnose patients and offer advice.

With a 4G LTE connection, the ATM can offer more sophisticated services, including a video conference with a remote teller.

The portable hard drive is constantly connected to cloud with a 4G LTE connection, so you can store files there even if you aren't close to it.
