Another Robot Helper

Another new autonomous robot helper, this one with grippers - ready for drink delivery!

Ubiko from Japanese manufacturer UBIX reacts to voice commands/requests with an "annoying" (AkihabaraNews) synthetic voice and is intended to "replace humans for such tasks as welcoming clients, promote products on site, etc.".


Update: mention on NewScientist, with correct rental price per hour ($445) and mention of other recently introduced robot assistants.
