SHOBOT / shopping assistant robot


SHOBOT is a shopping-assistant robot that replaces the traditional shopping cart and inefficient checkout counter in supermarket. Its "grab&go" concept provides us with a higher quality of shopping experience.
Imagine this: when we come into the supermarket, we only need put our shopping bag in SHOBOT and fill it with what we want to buy. In real time we can see the purchased items and prices at the touch-bar. When it's all done, we can just grab our full shopping bag and leave. SHOBOT will send a receipt for this purchase to our phone and complete the payment. It will also automatically return to its parking spot. Isn't it amazing?
