A 7-year-old boy, Devon Carrow-Sperduti, has potentially fatal allergies and must spent most of his life at home. Even one day in school can kill him. But now Devon has a special VGo robot that is linked to his home computer. The face of the boy appears via webcam on the robot and the boy can see the class, the teachers and his classmate via robot's frontal camera. The robot has its own desk in the classroom and can volunteer to answer the teacher's questions with a flashing light, rather than Devon raising his hand.
