Smart robotics‘ privately owned IoT robot “PAKKUN” and Yahoo’s IoT platform “myThings Developers” work together to start demonstrating the use of robots in private properties for leasing as guest houses and rooms. With this robot, they aim to improve the convenience of both the host and the guest.
Designing a robot was one of my dreams, and finally I’m really glad that the dream came true. PAKKUN, the robot has unbelievably cute voices and gestures so I tried to make it adorable and friendly.
Sure, this will definitely take you to the Starbucks, but if your iPhone already knows you’re going to a Starbucks, how about showing a cute and chatty barista who’s happily guiding you to the store like a human while naturally asking you what you’ll order at the Starbucks? It’d not only save your time, but you could enjoy your way there. Also, it could work without you looking at the screen if you have a set of earphones.
