How we solved the remote employee problem for less than $100 (and had a bit of fun)

We wanted to give Rudy the ability to rotate the laptop to whomever he was chatting with. This problem lent itself to a fairly simple solution that we thought we could put together rather quickly with an Arduino, a servo motor, a rotating platform, and a simple server that bridged communication between a serial port and TCP/IP port.

Cool solution, but it looks a little freaky. Sometimes we have Skype meetings with my boss and for a few seconds I always have the impression that my boss is actually a computer.
