Yotel's Yobot


Yotel’s Time Square New York hotel is slated to open later this week and, thanks to its Yobot, it quickly caught the attention of the locals before it even began taking bookings.

The Yobot – a giant arm robot and billed as the first of its kind – will take luggage from guests through a small opening and slide it into a locker space. Guests will be able to swipe their card and leave their luggage with the robot, but only after watching an entertaining acrobatic routine.
