The employees of the WFH could soon be virtual again – with high-tech avatars of themselves

Employees working from home will soon be back in the office virtually – using a robotic version of themselves.

Engineers have designed high-tech avatars that can nod, turn their heads 360 degrees, and communicate with colleagues in the field.

Employees can control the bots from their phone or laptop and sit back from anywhere

Employees can control the bots from their phone or laptop and sit back from anywhere.

Users can even set their droid to rise six inches to be on par with peers.

Japanese electronics company Kyocera said its kiosks will help remote workers stay connected with colleagues in the office, reduce stress, encourage hybrid communication and even give them a chance to chat casually with co-workers.

The Kyoto-based tech giant said: “Remote workers struggle to engage in casual office conversations, which can make them feel overlooked by colleagues who connect in a physical location.

“Similarly, on-site colleagues can feel isolated from remote workers who miss important social cues in the conversation.

“Kyocera’s new physical avatar offers a physical representation in the office.”
