At the intersection of telerobotics, computer networking and human social interaction we have chosen to explore an area we identify as personal tele-embodiment. At the core of this research is an emphasis on the individual person rather than the intricate complexities of the machine. While the mechanical elements of our system are essential to its over-all functionality, our research is driven solely by the study and understanding of the social and psychological aspects of extended human-human interactions rather than the latest techno-gadgetry. In this paper we emphasize the importance of the human component and describe the development of one such simple, inexpensive, Internet-controlled, untethered telerobot or PRoP (personal roving presence) that provides several fundamental elements of personal tele-embodiment
