I like Cobalt, it works. If you are working late at night it is kinda creepy the first time it roves around, maybe looking at you. Some time later you get used to it and it is nice to know that your company has another tier to offer support for its employees.

I am sure there are a few slippery HR slopes that exist, however these are more positive long term rather than a paranoid negative.

I cannot wait for the outdoor version with more IoT features. Just do it.

Suggestion: I think the Cobalt should be able to join a LIVE Zoom Meeting for live site logistics and current data monitoring. A robot that can enter construction zones and report data to a group of remote entities. A live robot and site assistant will be a nice future addon, let's go Cobalt, get that hardened robot ready, perhaps one with a custom car attached lift where integrators can take the Cobalt from site to site.
