Can't make it? Send a robot. Unlike traditional conferencing systems, QB is a telepresence robot that let's you wander around the office, a warehouse or home just as if you were there, allowing you to engage spontaneous conversations with your colleges, friends or family, with just a browser.
"Bot-in" and drive to that important meeting or be that special groomsman at your best pal's wedding!
Anybots streamlines your remote telepresence experience with WebRTC integration! All you need is a recent Chrome browser installed, no additional software, no plugin.
Virtual Presence utilizes the Internet to transmit audio & video between the pilot and his QB avatar.
The control commands are sent via a secured WebSocket. With a good connection, the latency of the video is short enough that the pilot can react with steering controls in real-time, even half way around the globe.
The QB avatar has a robust balancing platform and can operate at human height. So your interactions are natural and just as if you were standing there face-to-face.
Equipped with a LiDAR QB assists the pilot steering around obstacles while the new wheels provide stable & quieter rides.
QB has 2 high-definition cameras. The "conferencing" camera to capture the view straight ahead while talking to an encounter and the fisheye "drive" camera for a wide view while moving around, even when you are not in conferencing mood or just using Anybots' balancing unit for your own project.

A microphone captures what is being said to you while a speaker reproduces your voice on your avatar. QB has a larger LCD screen to display your live video stream or loop a video of your choice to promote a product or an event while driving QB around.
Try Anybots' headless drive for your connected device! Get Anybots stand-alone base unit and build your project on top of it's sturdy self-balancing system and assisted steering. You can directly connect & drive QB within your NAT using its NEW web interface and build you own custom web app for your smartphone or laptop using our drive API.
Give your Arduino or Raspberry Pi a ride while collecting data in realtime, but it can be anything like a smartphone or a tablet.
QB self-balancing system will bear your pay-load while steering and driving through exiguous spaces and onto rough surfaces. Its integrated LiDAR prevents hard collisions and assists you driving around obstacles. Although QB is not weather proof, you can still take it for a ride outdoors on a sunny day using a 4G connection.
While Personal Users can use QB to help keep an eye on things when they cannot be there in person, Business clients can employ QB to strengthen in-office collaboration by expanding their employees’ telecommuting options.
Users in education and healthcare can keep QB in-facility to bring in specialists and guests. QB provides increased quality of life for those with disabilities (read Mike Phillips -spinal muscular atrophy- user story) or patients that need to momentarily stay physically away from their social environment (read Grady, age 9 -post bone marrow transplant- user story).
QB allows them to stay in touch with friends and family avoiding total social isolation that can result in a feeling of loneliness and depression.
A common use case for QB avatars is one avatar dedicated to one user. Many times, this is use case is employed for remote workers, as well as business managers who travel frequently and need a presence at the main office. Personal users may use the QB avatar to keep an eye on the kids while they are at work.
Visit many sites in the same day by stationing QB avatars in each of them. Be virtually present in Tokyo and then London and then Moscow in a matter of seconds!
One QB avatar can be utilized by any number of users at different times. Provide support for commercial or industrial equipment, or, enable remote tours of your facility by allowing users with a variety of skills or interest to operate your QB. Personal users may place a QB avatar at an elder’s home so multiple family members can visit any time.
The Anybots Virtual Presence System enables multiple persons to monitor and use multiple QB avatars. Enhance productivity of your front office receptionist or retail sales operations by pooling labor and deploying it globally!
One-to-One / Executive Oversight "After a few months of beta testing for Anybots, I’m completely in love with it. At first I thought the bot would pay for itself if it could just replace one international trip, but now I realize that the real value is letting me preserve spontaneous interactions at the office even when I’m thousands of miles away. There’s no need to schedule formal meetings or herd everyone around a speaker phone. It’s easy to use and it keeps me connected."
Many-to-One / Customer Visibility E Systems Technology uses QB avatars to allow their clients to check in to E Systems’ manufacturing lines. “The ability for our customers to “tour” their own factory cell as their products are being produced provides them with the reassurance that their products are being manufactured to schedule and to their specific requirements. QB also allows them to attend our weekly customer product life cycle meetings if they are unable to attend in-person. This greatly improves communication and productivity."
Quality of Life / One-to-One "So, I’m about as physically disabled as it gets. I breathe through hoses connected to machines, I eat through tubes. I can pretty much only move my eyes. Still, assistive technology such as NeuroSwitch gives access to Mac OS X, and from there, access to everything else. Access to Anybots. Read more...
Quality of Life / One-to-One NeuroSwitch drives robots at AnyBots factory Today I just drove around the factory, navigating between tables and pillars, and other robots. I tried taking the tight spaces on purpose, just for kicks. I got a tour of the factory from a fellow named Bill. I followed him around, hearing about different projects, got to meet his lovely wife.

Remote Worker / One-to-One "Never would I have thought while working from my home office in the Midwest that I would be managing the lobby of one of the most successful businesses in Mountain View California. The Anybots® QB has given me the opportunity to bring 20 years of administrative and management experience to the table on a solely virtual level. One may say, “Well that is a robot not a person”, but the fact remains it is the direct opposite. It is a person transporting themselves via virtual presence through the robot. Read more..
Customer Service, Operations / Many-to-Many "We are excited to work with Anybots. We plan to use the robot in our I-Tech airport stores to attract customers, assist in inventory control, and provide on-going training for our employees. Additionally, we will offer QB for sale. Our typical customer consists of business owners, medical professionals, and upper management who are a great target market for this product."
Quality of Life / One-to-One / This is the greatest robot ever "Dear Anybots Team, Thank you so much for making such a big difference in my life. I was in the hospital for a bone marrow transplant for 44 days in isolation. Your robot made it so much more fun. Your team made it possible for me to visit with my brothers every night. I used the robot to attend my brother’s birthday party. My brother and I sleep in the same room and my brother does not like to sleep in a room by himself. Read more...
