Breaking a robot out of jail

A company called Double Robotics makes “telepresence robots”, which are basically mobile iPads that remote workers can use to give themselves a “virtual presence” in an office many miles away.

Their website includes a “test drive” feature where you can control one of these things through your own web browser. The test drive robot is normally confined to a single room, but someone figured out how to open the door with it and escape.

This whole story may just be a marketing ploy by Double Robotics, but it’s very entertaining.
