Yotel, famous for it’s suitcase storage robot has added a butler robot to YotelPad in Miami. The butler robot can deliver up to 77 pounds of drinks and other goodies.
The robot can also communicate in a variety of languages.
The robot is made by a company called Techmetics and can be tracked by an app. It can also autonomously navigate the elevators. Two robots will be available for residents and one for the guests of the hotel.
While the robot may be useful, we are not in love with the cartoonish face and think it could use a reworking. Techmetics could take some cues from Pepper by Softbank or Jibo for good human – robot interfaces.
