Your Future: The Robot Boss

Think all your boss does is wonder around the cubicles asking "What's happening?"  Well get ready for him/her to get even less involved.

Anybots, Inc. is now selling a line of remote-control robots that, among other uses, can be used by bosses to attend meetings and wander the office halls remotely.  Richard Garriott has purchased one to run his Austin, Texas-based video game development company, Portalarium.  

The robot rolls around the office on two wheels, allowing boss Garriott to participate in meetings and even strike up conversations with his developers when working from his New York home.

Hmmm.

So, what do you think? Innovation or indignity?
