Rent A Double Robotics Robot – Telepresence Device
Is your company or event looking for that “WOW” factor to give people something to remember you by? The folks at Double Robotics have taken telepresence to the next level by making it mobile – and now you can have it available on-demand from Technology One.
Our fleet has recently been upgraded. All our rental devices are the new Double 2 devices with more lateral stability and “fast speed mode”.
Our “Double” rental solution allows you to have a complete ready-to-go kit at any location around the country within 48 hours – no costs to acquire the robot, purchase the iPads, train someone on how to manage it and no need to pay to store it somewhere – we have everything ready to go.
By renting a Double Robotics Robot at your next personal or corporate event, you can have someone from a remote location drive through the venue, engaging with attendees other and create a lasting memory for how you are able to ensure people can be where you want them without having to travel anywhere.
Since 2012 our robots have been all over the country – attending dozens of weddings, reunions, trade shows, corporate recruiting events, technology demos, museum openings and even a science competition at a leading university.
We can provide complete turn-key solutions as well, from on-site staff to drive and monitor the robot (you supply the speaker / talent / content expert) to renting the driver equipment needed. Let us know what you need and we’re happy to provide options and pricing.
Typically it takes less than 10 minutes to assemble the robot and 5-10 minutes for someone to get the hang of driving it. To operate the Double Robotics Robot, all you need is a wi-fi connection for the robot, and either an iPhone 5/6/7, iPad 4+ or desktop computer running Google’s Chrome browser and you are ready to go.

We also have available the 360° Mounting Kit (use it with your Camera) 360 filmmakers and video production crews face the unique challenge of needing to hide the crew and equipment in a location away from the set. Traditional camera dolly systems often require human operators and tracks.
The aircraft-grade aluminum Universal 360 Camera Mount attaches to the Double base using an industry standard ¼”-20 bolt. An iPhone is secured in the mount and the camera operator can drive Double wirelessly from behind the scenes via LTE/4G, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
Whether filming on a controlled set or in a public place, a silent dolly system enables the sound engineers to capture the natural environment. Double has always been designed to operate very quietly, but it’s especially critical while filming.
The 360° kit has been tested with the GoPro Omni. Other camera kits which weigh under 5 pounds and have a standard screw mount can be used (Insta360 & GoPro Fusion are viable).
If you need a 360° camera – we have them available, including memory cards. Let us know your needs and we can supply pricing.
Guided Tour / Docent / Narration / Intercom
We’ve recently added our “guided tour” option. With this, if you are in an environment needing a more one-on-one experience or you are in a quiet environment where the normal speaker / mic option won’t work or isn’t appropriate — then this is the solution for you.
Some recent examples of using the tour / intercom mode:
- trade show booth with personalized sales or marketing person guided a customer through the booth
- museum or art exhibit with a docent providing expert information
- open house / house for sale – with the real estate agent providing an up close and personal tour
- personal shopper providing live view of clothes and accessories
The kit includes a bluetooth over-the-head wireless headset and a set of instructions on how to use the Double app’s advanced feature. With more than 8 hours of talk time and a quick recharge time – your guided tour can last all day while using the robot. You can also choose to use your bluetooth headset if desired – this gives you the ultimately flexibility.
Want to dress up your robot and make it a rolling billboard for your event or company? We have just the solution! The piece is attached to 2 lighting units which back-light the marketing piece. We’ve can provide custom printed materials or we can provide the specs for you to print them.. We have created them with logos or with conference badges, etc. We can supply photoshop files for your team to create or do designs for you. Pricing for the printed piece is $175 each and $50 for the lighting kits and consumables. Design services start at $75 for simple layouts.

2 Day and Overnight shipping is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than ground shipping.
** Please Note ** – An Additional UPS pass-through charge of $32 is added to every rental. This is due to the size of the robot and is assessed by UPS. They classify this charge as a “special handling” fee. If you are delivering to a residential address there is an additional cost from UPS. If you need a UPS pickup at the end of your rental, we are happy to arrange for it – there is a $14 pickup charge per robot. One other thing – if you are delivering this to a Hotel or a conference center, many of those facilities charge a pickup and delivery fee which is independent of any shipping costs – this is charged by the Hotel and not UPS.
