The Beam Store 425 University Ave., (855) 200-2326 (BEAM). Taylor is a face in a Roomba-like robot who chats with me from upstate New York. He is the host in this unmanned Beam store, which has been open just two weeks and is the first remotely staffed store in the world! Apparently Beam can beam you around the world for the price of a car. I suspect you are probably first hearing this here!? If I received one as a gift, I think I would save it until I find/select my new cat and then I would use it to keep in touch with my kitty when I am traveling. Or maybe I would dress it up in one of my outfits and give it to my grandkids to have video chats with me--I could follow them around and we could keep talking. What would YOU do with it?
