Moe-Bot robot to give virtual tours of Las Vegas Mob Museum

A teleconferencing robot called “Moe-Bot” will allow distant visitors to tour the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas. Users will be able to access a live video feed through their computers and smartphones, which will also allow them to control the robot as it travels through the museum. Users from all over the world will be able to access the service. The virtual tour begins in April.
