The large number of cuts in the video make me suspicious . . .

This is a demo of RoboStool's "Follow Me" feature. Go to www.norrislabs.com for more details.

no hes saying that its real but not as perfect as shown in the video . The video was most likely edited to make it look like the robot works perfectly and avoids all obstacles.

It uses obstacle avoiding and heat detection. The second video is almost definitely fake unless it was reprogrammed to go to that area or if there is some sort of RF in the living room by the chair.

I don't know, the roomba and other robots can find their charging stations.  This one seems to use similar technology between the robot and the remote.  So I don't see why it would have to be considered fake.

I'm not saying that it was all done in one take, but it was definitely edited.  Consider the camera person having to constantly reposition themselves for each shot and then having to edit it down so that it doesn't look like crap with them moving around.

the remote was above the floor where the robot was. Plus the roomba technology only works in one room , not a whole house.
