02 Nov The ‘retail robot’ is heading to Lakeside
From Friday 3 November – Sunday 5 September, a robotic retail assistant will be at intu Lakeside to test shoppers’ reactions.
An online personal shopper service, where customers can buy as they watch, and a live-chat facility are two more new technologies being trialled with intu Lakeside shoppers this month.
Bo, Europe’s first ever shopping centre robot, will interact with shoppers at intu Lakeside, direct them to different parts of the centre and ask them about their shopping experience.
It will even tell them about special offers they can take up at different shops in the centre.
Robot specialist BotsAndUs are the brains behind the one-meter-high retail robot.
