Imagine being greeted by the future every time you come home to YotelPad Miami. “At Yotel, we’ve always put technology at the heart of everything we do and we don’t just do it for the sake of it,” says Hubert Viriot, Yotel CEO. “To us, it has to be practical and functional and directly benefit either our guests or crew.” The two-compartment robot butlers are designed to ride the elevator and are capable of delivering loads up to 77 pounds including: beverages, food, treats, gifts, documents and more. In addition, they can be programmed to speak a variety of languages, dialogues and play digital files with music and voice recordings. During their downtime, the robots will roam the lobby, engage in conversation, play music and pass out treats. Designed and developed by robotics solutions company, Techmetics, the new service-oriented Techi robot butler will work side by side with staff to make deliveries to 231 Pads (residences) and 222 Cabins (hotel rooms). It is cleverly automated to interact with people. The development will offer studios, one- and two-bedroom residences with prices starting in the $300,000 range. In addition, owners have the unique opportunity to rent their residence on a short-term basis without restrictions and participate in a short-term rental program. The robot will be located at YotelPad Miami’s sales gallery until the development’s completion, which is slated for 2020. There will eventually be 3 robot butlers, but you can swing by and say hello to “Lulu” now; YotelPadMiami.com.
