Las Vegas—January 07, 2014—Double Robotics, Inc. today announced at the 2014 International CES that the charging dock accessory for the Double telepresence robot is now available for pre-order through www.doublerobotics.com.
“The charging dock has been the most requested accessory for Double,” said David Cann, CEO and Co-founder of Double Robotics, Inc. “We’re excited to provide our customers with an accessory that makes it even easier to connect remotely. Our ambitious engineers designed Double to be future-compatible with the charging dock, so that even our earliest customers can take advantage of this powerful upgrade. The dock is designed around a single beautifully sculpted block of aluminum, so customers can proudly park their Double in the office.”
The charging dock is compatible with all Double robots that have been previously purchased. The dock charges both Double and the attached iPad simultaneously. A video demonstration of the dock is available on the Double robotics website.
A new iPad mount that supports iPad charging will be standard on all new units and included with a dock purchase free for customers with legacy iPad mounts. The docking station is sold for $299 and will begin shipping in February 2014.
Double is part of the Apple Made for iPad Program and is compatible with iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation), iPad (4th generation), and iPad Air.
