The iPad on wheels is brilliant.

We tried to make a small one with a smartphone and Google+ hangout, but making a little Segway from a Lego nxt controller proved to be tricky. It could stand up and correct himself a little if you gave it a little nudge, but eventually it falls down.

Then somebody pointed out that it would be easier to make one on 4 wheels and feeling stupid we abandoned the project. Smile | :)

Video conferencing is better than e-mail and phoning, especially during standup meetings. But, being an i-pad on wheels or a permanent face on the wall takes it too far imo.

The Segway may be a fun little gimmick at the start, but in an everyday work situation, where people have to plug you in every single day, configure the new wifi settings, getting you unstuck, etc... you're annoying them slightly, in addition to being the weird kid who got special privileges. It seems a little tragic to me.

When working remote, I think It all comes down to the goodwill of the team and the remote worker to make the best out of the situation.
