All Home Robotics | The Best Alternatives to Double Robotics Telepresence Robots

Sunday September 16, 2018

Final recommendations and the runners up

It would seem that the best telepresence robot right now is the Ohmni. It combines some nifty features and functionalities, while also keeping the price down.

If you are, however, more budget-conscious, then you should check out the two telepresence robots that almost made this list: the Kubi and the Autonomous Clone.

The Padbot U1 version 2 works like the Double 2 in that you would need to supply your own tablet. But it does have a wide-angle lens, auto answer, and an external speaker. The manufacturer is also promising auto docking features in the near future. The good news is that it costs less than $1,000, giving you a more affordable alternative to all these costly robots.

You could also check out Kubi, which you can buy for as low as $600. Kubi does not travel around the office, though. The stationary robot stays on the desktop, but it can pan and tilt its head, allowing it to be a lively participant to any meeting. Kubi also needs you to provide your own tablet.
