Ubiko, the robot that will eventually put you out of work
UBIX, a Japanese company, offers a new robot named Ubiko. Its purpose is to replace humans for such tasks as welcoming clients, promote products on site, etc. This autonomous robot is controlled by voice and is able to quickly respond with its very annoying synthesized voice (got to the Ubiko website, you’ll understand what I mean). Heck, a few stores in the Shizuoka prefecture will even have an Ubiko in their staff.
Don’t worry, you won’t be replaced anytime soon by an Ubiko… At a 700.00 euros for 2 hours rental price, you still have plenty of work time ahead of you!
