Student attends class via robot

In this Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013 photo, Devon Carrow attends Winchester Elementary School from home while operating a robot in the classroom, in West Seneca N.Y. Carrow's life-threatening allergies don't allow him to go to school. But the 4-foot-tall robot with a wireless video hookup gives him the school experience remotely, allowing him to participate in class, stroll through the hallways, hang out at recess and even take to the auditorium stage when there's a show.
