Lexie Kinder has a desk in her third grade classroom at Alice Drive Elementary School in Sumter, South Carolina but a VGo robot sits in her place, Fox News reported.

VGo embodies a homebound or hospital-bound pupil in a distant location. A remote student can see, hear, talk, interact and move around as if they were in the school classroom.

Kinder said that she feels comfortable there but wants more than anything to be a normal student.

Kinder is one of 30 students with special needs in 13 states who are using VGo.

The robot, which costs about 6,000 dollars, has been on the market for a little over two years and is sold by VGo Communications.
