Robotic Luggage Handler

If you’re like me you hate having to give a tip to the Bellboy for carrying your bags. Well now you won’t have to if you stay at New York City’s new futuristic Yotel Hotel.
Yobot, a direct descendant of the robots working in automobile-assembly plants, deftly grabs, lifts and stores baskets containing luggage, much to the delight of sidewalk onlookers at its street-level window. Guests needing to store luggage start Yobot with their room cards and then follow instructions on a video screen as the luggage hatchway opens and closes before Yobot goes to work. The large robot moves surprisingly smoothly for its size as it locates the proper drawer space for the luggage and puts it away.
