      No PeerConnections flag in the Mac version of Chrome version 23.0.1271.52. :(

      Thanks so much everyone for a (largely) successful test of FIRST TEST of Romopresence!!

      We had a few glitches at the beginning, but we figured out a few really important things (Action item 1: Have multiple testing devices charged and at the ready, etc) thanks to your awesome willingness to drive Romo for hours last night.

      For those of you who couldn't get through, we're sorry about that - there was a pretty long wait line.

      After some rest (human AND robot) and data analysis we'll have another go. We'll announce when we go live again here.

      Phu and Dom and Bobby - you're the best robot wranglers ever :)

      PS - did anyone see Romo flip himself back over using his tilt mechanism?

      Never mind. Got it.
      Unable to connect. Maybe because of the queue of so many backers trying to connect.

      ! great experience :) everything went smooth, just one thing is that, when you get fast forward the iPhone on top is shaking and you have to adjust it with the W & S keys.
      Anyways Romo rocks (the office :)

      Downloaded Chrome. Enabled peer connections. Closed chrome... BSOD on a Windows Vista computer. Everything worked after the reboot though. No video on the Drive after it let me connect to a bot.

      The serendipity and synchronicity of this event must be noted:
