Teen uses VGo robot to attend class
A New Castle teen with spina bifida who can't attend class due to a seizure disorder uses a VGo robot, shown in the above video, to participate in class from home. Chris controls the robot via remote, moving it through the hallways, and is able to see his teachers, the blackboard and classrooms. A teacher sits alongside him during the day to assist him and he's able to interact with his classmates and friends via the VGo.
