“I remember school lunches as something I threw a lot of away,” she said. “I thought, "We are going to have to reinvent the wheel on this one."
"A.L O has the work ethic of Wall-E, the humor of Rosie from The Jetsons, and reminds me of my favorite childhood robot, R2-D2" said Brian McGuinness, global brand leader for Starwood's Specialty Select Brands...
Feeling mighty proud of its achievement, Savioke released a statement saying, "They say that every journey begins with a single step. Next week marks a major milestone in our mission to create autonomous robots for the services industry except, in this case our robot's journey begins with a single robot wheel rotation."
...Ad Feedback Travel expert Taylor Cole of Hotels.com sees Botlr as part of a trend. "From the drone delivery service offered by the Casa Madrona hotel in Sausalito, to the robotic luggage storage system used by the Yotel in Times Square, we've seen a number of properties utilise innovation and cutting-edge technology to create a unique guest experience. Innovations like these excite many guests and help hotels differentiate themselves from other properties."
