Robovie-II is the latest robot coming out of Japan. It helps you do your grocery shopping. This is perfect if you have a lot of groceries to lug around, if you are older, or disabled. Plus, it’s just so cool!

What actually surprises me even more is that it’s currently being tested in Kyoto, Japan. It’s part of a wave of new technology helping you do your groceries. It’s part of a form of retail assistance, that uses a network of sensors and wireless devices.

It’s shown here helping the elderly in doing their grocery rounds. It’s part of a whole process, which starts at home. The user enters their shopping list into a special mobile device. When the shopper arrives at the store, the robot will sense this device and greet the shopper. Then, the robot will help the shopper around the store, carrying the grocery load, and reminding the user of any items that were forgotten. It can also recommend further items. For now, it’s in testing in the Apita-Seikadai supermarket in Kyoto, Japan, until next March.
