Robots will soon start conquering buildings, Japan says


Japan-based tech powerhouses Shimizu and Yasukawa Electric think that robots can make life easier for all of us and initiated the “Smart Robotics Building” project to prove it – even if at this point, a show room must do.


In the so-called “Smart Showroom”, a guide robot called SmartGuide (pictured below) gives tours around exhibitions. He greets, guides and sees off guests. In the room, networked robots are being used instead of human guards, receptionists, guides, cleaners and delivery men.
