An Early Glimpse At The Future Of Hotel Room Service

Mar 8, 2015
This video may seem like it's test footage from some upcoming live-action version of "The Jetsons," but rest assured it's very real and coming soon to a hotel near you. Aloft Hotels has partnered with robotics company Savioke to bring guests the "A.L.O Botlr" (short for "robot butler").

Weighing in at 100 pounds, the Botlr has a seven-inch touchscreen display to communicate and interact with staff and guests and an empty, top-loading compartment to carry items like snacks, toiletries, or anything else weighing up to 10 pounds. It also comes equipped with 4G and WiFi technology, so it can call elevators for itself when it needs a ride to another floor. Savioke plans to start offering the Botlr to other hotel chains in the near future.
