In the future if you fall sick thousands of miles away from home, you may be treated by your own doctor by robot proxy. - A new technology is allowing doctors to treat their patients tens or thousands of miles away from where their offices or homes are via the "Robot Doctor" program. A robot doctor is exactly that, a robot that comes with a screen that is the 'head' and cameras are the doctor's eyes and ears. Robots can allow your personal doctor to check up on you in the middle of the night too if you are recovering from an operation.

that is very interesting to hear...it would be great that we will have the doctor all the time available to us, and the main thing that the real doctors will have little time to sleep

Robot docs may cut into that problem too as doctors suffer commuter hell along with the rest of us.

Waha, funny and really useful! So it is like we are talking to the phone to our doctor with a camera? It is good, i hope they would be available in France too because we are often sick here (in my family)...

Early adopters are usually expensive and in few places. Costs eventually fall as things catch on and prove themselves useful, then they spread like wildfire.
