iRobot (IRBT +1%) strikes a deal with Cisco (CSCO) to jointly market the company's Ava 500 video collaboration robot, and to integrate it with Cisco's TelePresence offerings. Much like the RP-VITA (aimed at hospitals), the Ava 500 sports an iPad UI, a large HD display, and iRobot's autonomous navigation tech.
