Butlerbot / Interior Smart Robot


The existing space is occupied by fixed furniture, resulting in the function of space being fixed. Our existing way of using space let them being wasted during lots of time. In the future high-density urban space, we need to have a smarter way to use our space.
The user controls the robot to move and organize the furniture through the mobile phone end. The robot reorganizes the layout according to the needs of the owner, which can provide different functions during different time. Our existing building space can thus be extended in the dimension which let people can enjoy multiple activities in small area.
