Robot stalks the Canal City pleasure zone of Fukuoka Japan

mr-robot

Canal City in Hakata Fukuoka Japan has a Problem-Bot—That is, you ask the patrol robot a simple question or for directions in Japanese, engRish, Chinese or Korean and the robot will answer with some kind of lame reply like, “It’s crowded, be careful.”

Occasionally mall employees use the robot’s speakers and web-camera to talk to children. With prearrangement the robot will wish a child happy birthday. (And, according to the GAP store manager in the mall, the robot has tried out nanpa/pick-up lines on cute girls shopping with a, “90% success rate.”)
