It’s the stuff of science fiction, yet in Silicon Valley, this is just another day at the office.

    Oh we really need an artificial presence in thwe workplace to stay connected if working remotely? Now, I would be the first to say that having a robot version of some employees would be a blessing rather than them being in the office, particularly if you can sneak up on them and hit the 'off' switch, but this is probably just a bit of boys toys for tech geeks rather than adding any real value for remote work.

    Actually, you could probably have all sorts of fun with a robot version. How about taping a beach image in front of the camera? Or the image of the back of an airliner seat while playing jet engione noises into the microphone (Robby the Robot goes on vacation?). It would be real easy to be making rabbits ears behind someone on a monitor.

    The opportunity for hilarity could be endless.

    Any other ideas?

    And Sheldon did this in Big Bang theory - when he decided to stay in bed. Leonard even had to drive this "robot Sheldon" to work.
