Have you met Yobot? The first ever robotic hotel concierge?
Not only do the Yotel chain of hotels have a fully automated check-in service so you don’t have to deal with any annoying, perky humans in your jet-lagged state, but the Yotel in New York also features a robotic baggage drop-off machine. Labelled now as the world’s first hotel robotic luggage handler, “Yobot” loads and stores your luggage. If you don’t need your luggage, that’s great. But if you do, wouldn’t it be handier if your robot could carry it to your room for you?
The T-Tech by Tumi luggage Lounge lets you safely store your bags before check in or after check out so you can make the most of your visit. Simply place your belongings in one the 150 bins, enter a PIN No. and your last name and watch YOBOT store it away safely.
YOBOT will give you a receipt to take away with you.
When you need your belongings back you can retrieve them just simply by letting YOBOT scan the bar code on your receipt or use your PIN and last name. The New York Yotel will exclusively have the Yobot luggage service. Some of the perks to the Yotels, beside the Yobot, include a bed that transforms into a space-saving lounging position when you push a button, a Techno Wall that houses a flat screen TV and storage components, and a bathroom wrapped in glass. Premium cabins start at US$179 per night.
