Joshua Martinangeli, a 7-year-old German student, is too ill to go to school. However, the avatar robot does not lose its lessons, thanks to a technological miracle.
The robot goes to classes for Joshua, who interacts with teachers and classmates through him. Whenever Joshua has something to say, Joshua sends an intermittent signal through the robot.

Joshua’s mother, Simone Martinangeli, said in an interview for Reuters that Joshua has a tube in his throat due to severe lung disease. This prevents him from going to school.

“Children talk to him, laugh with him and sometimes even talk to him during the lesson. Joshi can do that pretty well, too, “she said.
The robot avatar project is a private initiative that is paid for by the local council in the Berlin district called Marzahn-Hellersdorf.
